Native American Art

Indigenous People have occupied what is now the United States for more than 15,000 years. Today, hundreds of recognized tribes continue the legendary traditions of endurance, bravery, pride, and the array of enriching experiences that are key to the history and future of Native American culture.

Although the Native tribes of North America were greatly impacted by colonization from Europeans and immigrants from all corners of the globe, the artistry of the Native Peoples has been recognized by curators and historians for it's unique beauty and exquisite craftsmanship.

 

The Uniqueness of Native American Art and Culture is Appreciated Worldwide

In addition, artists from around the world have for generations been inspired by the majesty and lore of the American Native experience and have attempted to capture the spirit of America's first inhabitants in paintings, sketches, books, films, and in majestic statuary.
