For those of you who don’t know about the Indian Market in Santa Fe, NM here is some brief information.
The Southwestern Association on Indian Affairs, aka SWAIA has been producing this show for over 90 years in downtown Santa Fe, NM. The Market attracts over 1000 artists from all over the country and has some of the most exquisite work of Native Americans being shown today. The show itself is held for 2 days usually the 3rd weekend of August. But in actuality there are activities all through Santa Fe at art galleries, museums and performing art spaces for the week prior to the Market.
You can find out more about SWAIA Indian Market by going to their website: http://swaia.org/
I have been attending or participating in Indian Market since 1977, when I first arrived in the southwest to attend school at the Institute of American Indian Arts.
Here are some pictures from our recent trip to market.
