  • Fake Indian arts and crafts?? Report here

    I never knew about this until I came across it today. I found it very interesting becasue there are so many that do try and pass of their art work and jewellery as native design when they are not. I think this is a great thing to have for our Native designers and Artists.

    What do you guys think?

      Ya me too, I buy from relatives or freinds I know are native..LOL.. But I didnt realize there was such a thing a whole ACT just for this, cause I have seen alot of rip offs, and it makes me laugh or I get down right disgusted because they claim it is authentic native arts... it just good to see that there is something put in place to insure the authenticity of Native crafts.

        California has a Native American Day. I was asked to create a small image to bring attention to this, however my boss considered it offensive. I put Chumash characters on the text to share a past local tribe's unique art and choose to include a buffalo, because it was such an important animal to Native...
