  • Many Native American artists are inspired by their rich cultural history and the traditions of art, dance, community, and cuisine that have carefully been passed down for generations. From colorful shell bead work and mosaic inlay to Navajo weaving and Pueblo pottery, there are many art forms that are unique to the Pueblo people of New Mexico and tribes of the Southwest. Native American artists are inspired to preserve these traditional art forms, using them to tell stories of their history and culture while also preserving the high standards of craftsmanship that make their work distinctive, valuable, and lasting.
