Santa Fe Indian Market
It is an exciting for me and my family when the Santa Fe Indian Market rolls around! It is a reminder as to how beautiful my culture is, and I take even more pride that it happens right here, in New Mexico!
For those of you hearing about it for the first time, the Santa Fe Indian Market is the largest and most prestigious Native arts show in the world! It is a unique opportunity for people to meet and learn about modern Indian arts and Cultures. The Santa Fe Indian Market has been around now for 96 years!
When attending, you’ll have the chance to meet over 1,000 Native artists from both the USA, and Canada! The Indian market website (www.swaia.com) writes,
“There are 10 kinds of art in both traditional and contemporary forms you can buy at the Santa Fe Indian Market: Jewelry, Pottery, Sculpture, Textiles, Paintings, Wooden Carvings (Kachinas), Bead Work, Baskets and Diverse Arts, which encompass a variety of items including drums, bows and arrows, cradle boards, etc., There are literally thousands of handcrafted works of art for sale.”
Even if you are not a buyer, however, this is still a great chance to meet and learn about Native culture as a whole!
Come join me this year at the market!
Remember, LET CRU, HELP YOU!
