Buy American - Buy Authentic Indian Art: Take Home a Treasure from Indian Country

The Indian Arts and Crafts Board (IACB), an agency in the U.S. Department of the Interior, was created by Congress to promote the economic development of American Indian and Alaska Natives (Indian) through the expansion of the Indian arts and crafts market. As part of its promotional services, the IACB maintains the Source Directory of American Indian and Alaska Native Owned and Operated Arts and Crafts Businesses, a great resource for people looking to buy authentic Indian art or Indian artists interested in a free business listing.

WHAT IS THE SOURCE DIRECTORY?

There are more than 500 businesses listed in the Source Directory, including Indian arts and crafts cooperatives and Tribal arts and crafts enterprises; businesses and galleries privately owned and operated by individuals, designers, craftspeople, and artists who are enrolled members of federally recognized Tribes; and a few nonprofit organizations, managed by enrolled members of federally recognized Tribes, that develop and market art and craftwork.

Some of the businesses listed in the Source Directory maintain retail shops or open studios; others sell online, by appointment, or mail order only. This information is provided in the listing, along with business hours, contact information, major products, website information, mail order, and special services offered. Business listings are available on the IACB’s website, http://www.doi.gov/artisans.
