Our Mission

As a federally recognized non-profit organization incorporated in 1990 [Arizona reg.# 02261435], the Friends of Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site, Inc. contributes to the management objectives of the National Park Service at Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site. Related goals include revitalizing Native American arts and crafts, perpetuating John Lorenzo Hubbell’s legacy, providing college scholarships to Navajo, Hopi, Zuni, Acoma, Laguna, and Southern Ute Nation students,and increasing public awareness of the Park. We invite you to assist us in these efforts by becoming a member.

Friends of Hubbell Trading Post NHS is a 501(c)(3) organization established in 1990. The aim of Friends of Hubbell is to aid and promote the management of programs and objectives of the Historic Site. Other goals include supporting Native American arts and crafts through our biannual Friends of Hubbell Native American Art Auction, providing scholarships to Navajo, Hopi, Zuni, Acoma, Laguna, and Southern Ute Nation college students, and increasing awareness of the trading post heritage in the Southwest.

Friends of Hubbell Accomplishments – In the 33 years of our existence, our auctions have returned over $3,000,000 to the community through the weavers and other artists who consigned items into our auctions. We have encouraged young weavers to put their first rug into our auctions and when they sell, it is a strong incentive to weave yet another rug – and they only get better! Our scholarship program through 2023 has awarded just over $300,000 to Native American students in the four corners area. We have worked closely with the Park management to secure grants to help implement new programs that the Park would like to pursue and to provide monies and equipment for which there is no funding source.
