In American Indian culture, certain ceremonies follow a particular and proper time for occurrence, dictated by nature, the stars, and celestial events. We are grateful for the ancient respect of interconnectedness with our Earth, Sun, Moon and Stars reflected in much of the art Indigenous artists have chosen to share with our world.

Friends, customers and artists, you are certainly on our minds!
Raven Makes Gallery is open, with responsible health safety measures in place. Come reflect on our new works curated directly from our Indigenous artists.
Keep our online presence in mind. We are adding new items weekly. Know that your patronage supports our artists and their families, many in remote communities, who are facing cancellations of important art markets and venues to promote and sell their art directly. Our role is to continue to offer our artists' creations and through you, support them with sales, courage and appreciation.
Please stay safe, healthy and hopeful.
