During your next visit to the South Rim, be sure to check out the new Mather Point Amphitheater and Tribal Landmark Feature. The former is a rim-side arena constructed of native stone that will provide an unparalleled setting for visitors to enjoy big canyon views and compelling ranger programs. Constructed with native stone, the amphitheater can accommodate crowds of up to eighty people.
The Tribal Landmark Feature was also constructed of native stone, and pays tribute to the numerous Native American tribes that have ancestral and ongoing connections to Grand Canyon.
During an October 25th dedication, Havasupai tribal member Dianna Sue White Dove Uqualla addressed a crowd of park dignitaries and visitors. She finished her speech with a heartwarming blessing of the site. Both of these projects were made possible by a grant from the Salt River Project and their partners, and represent the latest milestones in the ongoing enhancements in the Visitor Center area near Mather Point.
