Native American Indian Art reflects native culture, past and present and our guests truly receive an intimate window on Native culture when they interact with artists.

 

Take the oportunity to visit galleries, experience Native Art shows and  learn for yourself in workshop settings some of the skills that have been used by tribes for hundreds of years.

Join a Native Arts tour and learn about everything from dreamcatchers to painted hides, jewelry to woven rugs, Kachinas to moccasins, beadwork and quillwork...

 

Explore fine art and discover that the importance of Native Art goes way beyond its status as an economic lifeline amid tribal poverty!
