A priceless collection of Native American art is displayed throughout Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale. In our lobby, guests will find a cultural center. Ensconced in glass, the cultural center features native pottery, jewelry and a talking stick, a custom piece from which the hotel gets its name. The art displayed in the cultural center reflects the Pima and Maricopa ancestry that now forms the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC). In fact, most of the art included in the cultural center was actually created by members of the SRPMIC.
Other mediums of art featured throughout the property, include historic Arizona photos, textiles, commissioned contemporary Native American paintings, baskets and more. You would have to stay at the hotel several times to see all of the art compiled there. Moreover, it is said that the art collection inside Talking Stick Resort is the largest Native American collection one can see outside a museum.
