The exhibit “New Identities in Chickasaw Art” features artwork ranging from handbags and jewelry to hand-crafted knives and paintings that capture the essence of tribal elders.

This celebration of Chickasaw art and culture, opening 2:30 p.m. today, will be one of the first events conducted at the tribe’s new tourism offices in Oklahoma City’s Bricktown.

The offices are located on the first floor of the original Bunte Candy Factory building, 1 East Sheridan, Suite 100.

“These artists are incredibly talented,” said Bill Anoatubby, Governor of the Chickasaw Nation, in a news release. “It is truly inspiring to see such a variety of creative expressions of Chickasaw culture and heritage.”

Hummmmm Notice the Great Talent? A lot along the same style of painting, don’t you think? Yes, I think we are on the right path for finding this Artist among the Chickasaw People!

Rock, Rattle and Drum: 5 Native Musical Instrument Makers Carving Their Way to the Top


Music is vital to the history, traditions and storytelling of Native Americans and First Nations people, and plays an important role in many tribal ceremonies, pow wows, celebrations, courtships and healings.

While Indian Country is full of talented Native singers and musicians who have earned well-deserved recognition for their gifts, they couldn’t create their magic without musical instruments.

Indian Country Today Media Network spotlights five natives who have perfected the craft of making drums, flutes, rattles and even guitars. Some do it for a living, and for others, it’s far more than a hobby. As one music-maker said, “Native Americans don’t refer to making instruments as a hobby. It’s a cultural connection.”

Native American Vendors Program of the Palace of the Governors

E Palace Ave and Lincoln Ave

Santa Fe, NM 87503

Background: the Native Indians have to get a permit every morning to sell here.  Sometimes a permittee will share their stall with someone who was shut out that morning.  These are kind people, and frankly, mostly pretty poor.  The love & karma thing you can do is contribute to their economy by buying something that’s going to make you, and your friends, family and/or lover all very happy.

  • Money isn’t even half of what’s happening here.

I like turquoise and silver at least as much as the next girl, so though I rarely seek out souvenirs when I travel, I knew I wanted to leave Santa Fe with something blue and pretty.

I’d seen the Native American Vendors Program listed on Yelp, but we ran into it while strolling around downtown Santa Fe.  You can’t really miss it if you’re exploring the area at all.  I’m not sure what the hours are, but I can’t imagine they’re anything but extremely tourist friendly.  Just look for an outdoor corridor with a couple dozen seated vendors displaying their goods.

We browsed at our leisure, and not a single vendor put pressure on us to look closer or buy.  Jewelry comprised about 90% of the goods on offer, and I enjoyed looking at all the pieces.  Near the end of my browsing, a cluster of silver bangles with turquoise and silver beads caught my eye.  The vendor behind them was a middle-aged Native American woman who was gruff in a friendly, approachable way.  I asked if I could try on a bracelet, and she gave me a few different ones that she said were right for my wrist size.  She was helpful, and she seemed to take pride in her jewelry, which she made herself.  The sticker price for the bracelet was $45, and though I suspected we were supposed to haggle, we didn’t know for sure and didn’t want to bother.  The bracelet was well worth $45, and the lady was nice enough that I didn’t mind the idea of overpaying by a few bucks.

Matt B. bought me the bangle, and I have worn it pretty consistently over the last couple weeks.  It was a lovely present and souvenir, and I’m happy we did our shopping here.  (Window shopping in other stores in downtown Santa Fe quickly taught us that turquoise and silver can get stunningly expensive.)  I’ll be sure to check out the Native American Vendors Program any time I find myself in Santa Fe.

Albany, CA


This is a must stop if you come to Santa Fe and the Plaza.  It is a great place to find First Nations jewelery and associated items sold by Native folks (from the various area Pueblos).  The selection is excellent and it changes over time.  The First Nations folks are friendly and very knowledgeable about their work.  Prices vary and need to be carefully considered in terms of the value of the particular piece.

And while your on the Plaza, don’t forget the incredible museums!
