It's our Third Saturday opening this Saturday, December 20th. We look forward to seeing you!




The jingling on the street corners and the red, green, silver and blue decorations let us know that the holidays are here and we are entering the final leg of the shopping journey for 2014. Avoid the crush of the shopping malls with a trip to the Indian Craft Shop. There is no concern that you will be giving a duplicate gift with the handmade, unique pieces you will find here! It's a great way to show your support for small businesses, to buy American handmade and...when you give the gift of culture and history, you are giving a gift that will last a lifetime as well as possibly sparking an interest in fascinating and varied artistic traditions.

Wonderful pieces from both new and existing artists have arrived in the Shop; you'll find an eclectic and beautiful assortment of jewelry, pottery, carvings, rugs, leather work and folk art.



Some of our new items include parfleche boxes, envelope purses and even a quiver, all made from elk rawhide and soft deerskin trim and fringe. If you can't make the trip to the Shop, visit our online store, which has a nice sampling of our available items.

And, don't forget yourself this holiday season! While you are working to make everyone else happy, remember that they want you to be happy as well. Add some interesting diversity to your seasonal decor with a sand painting or wood carved ornament, or a Nativity scene made from clay or carved wood. Find some of our latest additions to our online store on our New Additions page.  




Any last-minute gift needs you may have are sure to be filled!
