firstmesa mapFirst Mesa artists are known for their pottery and Kachina Dolls. There are three villages on First Mesa: Walpi, Tewa, and Sichomovi.  Driving to the top of First Mesa is like climbing to the top of the world as the vistas take in a great expanse of the surrounding desert.  Walpi is a unique village that is accessible to visitors on a Walking Tour that begins at Ponsi hall.  There is no electricity or running water in the village of Walpi.  Hano was settled by the Tewa people who were the last group to become Hopi over 600 years ago.
