Thank you for your purchases over the past two months.
Local outlets remain closed. Retail outlets remain closed. ALL shows are cancelled throughout the summer and fall. As a result, most artists are discouraged, desperate or not working at all. Incomes are minimal, yet their bills continue. The full effect of the pandemic on Native American artists will continue for many months or longer.
We have bought hundreds of carvings and jewelry (mainly earrings) from many artists since mid-March through on-line banking and postal shipments. We plan to continue this approach for quite a while. The pueblos and Navajo Res remain the most vulnerable and hardest hit areas of New Mexico.
