Amarillo: Kwahadi Museum of the American Indian

Housed in a replica Pueblo Indian kiva (underground ceremonial chamber), the Kwahadi Kiva Indian Museum features fine art and exhibits of the crafts and cultures of the Pueblo and Plains Indian people, featuring the works of Thomas E. Mails and bronze artist, Tom Knapp.  The center has two performance areas for the Kwahadis Dancers and visiting performance groups, the indoor Kiva and the outdoor Plaza. The Kwahadi Dancers are a unique youth performing group from the Panhandle area of the Texas High Plains.  In addition to regularly scheduled public shows at the Kiva, the Kwahadis present their colorful pageant of song, dance, and stories of the American Indian nationwide.
