Buying Native American Indian art and crafts directly from the men and women who make them can be a highlight of a visit to Northern Arizona.
You’re not only getting treasured mementos of your trip, but you’re also investing in the continuing traditions of the artists who created them. Deciding what and where to purchase, and ensuring that the items are genuine, is not always easy. Four tips are: check the label, question the origins, study before you get there, and ask for documentation.
