Once upon a time, on the first road trip to the Great American Southwest, I found the landscape captivating and Native America even more fascinating....and wanted a reason to return to the southwest as often as possible. As I continued exploring Native America, specifically arts and crafts, I wanted to share my finds with as many folks as possible. And so..Nizhoni Southwest Spirit began. I had two goals: economic support for native artists and support for authentic native made arts and crafts. So..no fakes, imposters or imports sold here--only the real deal by inspired Native American Artists. I soon found an organization that was started to address the growing problem of misrepresentation in Native American Arts and joined IACA (Indian Arts and Crafts Association) in 1998. IACA was a wonderful resource for Indian artists, wholesalers, retailers and collectors. Although IACA dissolved in 2018, the mission remains: ethical representation of authentic Native American Arts.
