How To Sell Your Native American Art

We receive a lot of questions about how to go about selling pieces of people's Native American art. Most of the time it isn't as simple as you think, but it can be rewarding.  We have some sage "tips" for you if you just read this.


Know The Law Regarding Indian Arts and Crafts, and the Indian Arts and Crafts Board.

Before buying Indian arts or crafts at powwows, annual fairs, juried competitions, and other events, check the event requirements on the authenticity of products being offered for sale. Many events list the requirements in newspaper advertisements, promotional flyers, and printed programs. If the event organizers make no statements on compliance with the Act or on the authenticity of Indian arts and crafts offered by participating vendors, you should obtain written certification from the individual vendors that their Indian arts or craftwork were produced by tribal members or by certified Indian artisans.
