What is the difference between handmade and handcrafted Native art? Many non-Native people are copying the designs of Native American artists, which contributes to the loss of culture and income for many Native people. Your awareness of these serious issues will protect your own purchases while also helping Native artists and businesses prosper. Tony Eriacho, Jr. is a Zuni artist specializing in silver and turquoise jewelry and is President of the Council for Indigenous Arts and Culture, whose mission is to foster support and understanding of authentic Indian arts, crafts, traditions, and cultures.
