Experience a Cultural Event * Meet Native American Artists * Shop Authentic
Free Event Held Every Weekend November — March 8am-3pm
Native Americans artists gather to showcase their artwork providing opportunity to meet artists and learn about Native art and culture. This event will provide quality Native Handcrafted Products. No Imports. No Imitations. This will be the first weekly weekend market dedicated to Native Culture and Crafts. This is a seasonal event held throughout Fall, Winter and Spring. This event is operated completely by Native Americans with all Native American vendors.
Native Art Walk will provide a safe and affordable avenue for Native Americans to sell their handcrafted items directly to tourists and local residents in the metropolitan area. The event will give Native American families an opportunity to generate significant profits through the sale of their products with little overhead.
Native American artists face unique challenges across America to sell their products directly to consumers. Native American handcrafted are subjected to cultural appropriation and imitation, including fake handcrafts being manufactured overseas and imported into the USA. The sale of counterfeit goods has been happening for decades and is widely acknowledged. Native American artisans are offended by the imitations. In addition, Native American artisans are faced with the problem of being refused to sell their goods and certain local Art Walk market events.
It has been estimated that the Native American arts and crafts industry brings in more than a billion in gross sales annually nationwide (Source: National Geographic). However, due to the high prevalence of fake goods, Native Americans only see a small portion of this. For many Native American artisans, making and selling handmade jewelry, baskets, pottery, carved figurines, beaded leather, and other crafts provide livelihoods for thousands of indigenous people, which further exacerbates the problem.
Prevented from selling their products directly, many Native Americans resort to wholesaling their products to retailers, resulting in significantly reduced ability to generate a reasonable profit on the products.
So come out and support your Local Native Artisans.
