American Indian Languages American Indian Tribes What's new on our site today!
We get a lot of mail asking us to recommend websites where people can buy authentic American Indian arts and crafts.
There are many imitations of Native American artwork out there, and it can be hard to tell the wheat from the chaff.
It doesn't help that most Native American artists don't have websites, whereas every marketer of Chinese-made dreamcatcher
knockoffs has at least twenty different URLs trying to sell their stuff.
So if you're looking for arts and crafts that were actually made by Native Americans, either because it's important to you to have the real thing or because you want to support native people with your purchase, here is our directory of American Indian artists whose work is available online. If you have a website of Native American art (traditional, contemporary, or mixed) to add to this list, let us know. We gladly advertise any individual native artist or native-owned art store here free of charge, provided that all arts and crafts were made by tribally recognized American Indian, Inuit, or First Nations artists.
Thank you for your interest in American Indian art!

About us: This website belongs to Native Languages of the Americas, an indigenous language non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting endangered Native American languages. We are not artists ourselves, so if you are interested in buying some of the crafts featured on this page, please contact the artists directly. Though we have featured only American Indian art identified with the name and tribal affiliation of each artist, we haven't called the tribal offices to check up on any of them, and we only know a few of them personally. We also don't guarantee any of their products. This is not an exhaustive list of Native American art--if you would like us to add your art site to this page, please contact us with your URL and tribal affiliation. We advertise any individual native artist or native-owned art business here free of charge. We do not link to arts or crafts which are not made by tribally recognized American Indian, Inuit, or First Nations artists, so please do not ask us to. And finally, websites do occasionally expire and change hands, so use your common sense and this general rule of thumb: if the creator of each individual artwork is not identified by name and specific tribe, you are probably not looking at genuine Native American art.
