AMERICAN NATIVE ARTS
The rich cultures and traditions of American Natives
encompass many forms and styles of artwork.
These fine artists and museums represent just a few
of the many tribes and geographical areas.
For many Native People making and selling
their artwork is their only form of income.
Please remember that unless Reservation Natives
leave to work and pay into the Social Security system,
they will not receive any retirement income.
If you are a Native Artist with a phone number,
email address or web site, please write to be listed here.
