In American Indian culture, certain ceremonies follow a particular and proper time for occurrence, dictated by nature, the stars, and celestial events. Many of our artists and jewelers use this time of Winter Solstice to contemplate and prepare for the next season’s designs, orders and shows that happen in the summer months. We are grateful for the ancient respect of interconnectedness with our Earth, Sun, Moon and Stars reflected in much of the art they share with our world.

The contemporary Native American Indians of the Great Basin region include highly respected artists. Some of them use strictly traditional imagery and craftsmanship in their work, others combine these aspects with contemporary materials and concepts. No matter the approach taken, their artistry carries astute cultural and natural understanding of the landscapes of Nevada, California, and Oregon.
