Our Policies

Our Ecotour Policy:

Crossing Worlds Journeys creates a rich sense of place with authentic, personalized cultural and nature experiences that respect the Native and local peoples and the land from which they spring. We explore in depth the cultures, human history and natural history of the region. We bring together circles of people so the inherent dignity and wisdom of all are honored, bringing understanding and economic benefits to the local peoples. Our non-profit branch does service projects in Hopi lands. We share our love of the earth with our guests, teach principles of minimizing impact to the land, recommend organic and local foods as a key to good health, and support local stewardship groups.
