"INDIAN VILLAGE OF AHWAHNEE" Yosemite National Park Off The Beaten Path Tip by travelgourmet
Yosemite National Park Off The Beaten Path: 103 reviews and 159 photos
Hidden behind the Valley Visitor Center and the Yosemite Museum is the recreated traditional cultural presentations of the Ahwahneechee, the native people of Yosemite Valley, who called the area "Ahwahnee" ("Place of a Gaping Mouth"). Looking up from their villages to the surrounding valley of waterfalls and cliffs with magnificent trees, one does have to say the mouth does gape. There are many fine recreations that are still used for ceremonial practices.
