Native Americans (indigenous people in the United States) have very beautiful costumes, arts and jewelry. They are making lots of items and selling some this weekend in Salt Lake City.

The 2022 Native Art Market will be held at the Natural History Museum of Utah (NHMU), which is located at the Rio Tinto Center at the University of Utah. The address is 301 Wakara Way, Salt Lake City.

The Art Market will be held on Saturday October 8 and Sunday October 9, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

The website states:

Offering a wide variety of mediums – including pottery, sculpture, painting, photography, jewelry, kachinas, and more – the annual Native Art Market at NHMU brings the best of Native American art to Salt Lake City for you to browse and shop.

Meet more than 35 artists, support their work and discover the traditions maintained by their art. Cultural presentations by Indigenous community partners and a showcase of ethnographic collections will also be presented each day of the market.

Admission to the compulsory museum. All proceeds from sales go directly to the artists.

There will be jewelry from artists who are members of Kewa Pueblo/Santa Domingo, Navajo, Laguna and Zuni. The textiles will come from Navajo artists. Pottery will be from Zuni and Navajo, Kickapoo and Ute artists. There will also be various paintings, photographs, sculptures, leather and beads from the Choclaw Nation of Oklahoma, Oklahoma Cherokee and Hopi/Navajo.

The Art Market will also feature hourly short dance performances, short talks in the Community Hall, a collection showcase and a demonstration by Jessica Wiarda, Hopi Artist-in-Residence. There will also be hands-on activities for children and families. Robb “Little Owl” Martin will play the flute throughout the museum during the art market.

NHMU has held an annual Native Art Market since 2013. It showcases some of the most talented Native American artists in the country. More than twenty-five tribes have participated over the years.

Anyone interested in Native American culture is invited to join the art market where many wonderful products will be on sale. It is also a good way to learn about diversity and culture.
