 American Native Photographer


The rich cultures and traditions of American Natives

encompass many forms and styles of artwork.

These fine artists and museums represent just a few

of the many tribes and geographical areas.

For many Native People making and selling

their artwork is their only form of income.

Please remember that unless Reservation Natives

leave to work and pay into the Social Security system,

they will not receive any retirement income.
