What makes Restival so unique is it’s transformative and empowering collaborations with indigenous peoples. Our relationship with the Navajo people is treasured and extraordinary. We invite Navajo people to stay with us on camp at Restival, so you may well find yourself learning about the Four Sacred Directions over breakfast with the Diné. It’s an insight into a wisdom that will be imprinted onto your consciousness forever.
Diné means ‘of the people’. You’ll learn more Navajo words every day, and by the end of Restival you’ll be greeting one another in the native tongue. One day you will learn the word for beauty because this enchanting land will live in your heart forever.
Restival takes you further into the world of the Diné with Peacemaking, Horsemanship, Art, Storytelling, Astronomy, and language lessons. There will be a visit to the famous STAR School, an incredible educational facility - the only off-grid school in the USA and winner of numerous awards.
Restival is truly grateful to the Diné for their support. We respect their traditions with reverence.
