About The Arizona Culturekeepers Program:
Working in conjunction with the Official State Historian, Marshall Trimble, The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa designed the Culturekeepers program to recognize state residents who are committed to upholding the traditions, rituals and culture of Arizona. Established in 2002, the Culturekeepers program has announced and recognized 10 individuals during an annual event at The Westin Kierland. By the state’s centennial in 2012, 100 Culturekeepers will have been honored by the Arizona Culturekeepers program. The selection committee is led by Marshall Trimble, Official State Historian and was originated by Katherine “Kax” Herberger, longtime Valley philanthropist, who passed away in 2003.
