Our guide was extraordinary. He was like a walking encyclopedia. He spoke with a lot of passion and showed us places no ordinary tour would do. You learn the differences between the tribes and the differences between their stories. This is not a holiday, it’s a lifetime experience.

To travel with Go Native America is to see another world. A country, a history, a religion and a people that have refused to vanish under the terrible pressures of encroachment and inequality. There is no part of this world that the guides cannot offer some insight to, and their intimate connections to some of its most significant people help what must be the best cultural introduction to America’s indigenous nations.
