We make every effort to honestly represent the items we present to you. The majority of our pieces are one-of-a-kind and have been designed and handmade by Native American artists. However, many of these artists, despite their birth and heritage, cannot legally call their work Native American made. The U.S. Government has created a law and a system making it difficult for many true Native American artists to obtain the proper tribal registration and identification. This is mainly due to a lengthy and complicated process. We have been in business over 42 years and are very fortunate to know many of the families (silversmiths) that we buy from. While some of our Native American artists do indeed have the proper registration and census number, some of them do not. Therefore, you will see below our disclaimer which we are required by law to post onto our site.
In the absence of a specific certification to the contrary, the seller does not warrant or represent that any particular item which is sold or offered for sale herein is an authentic Indian art or craft as defined by the laws of the State of Arizona, the laws of the United States, or the laws of any other jurisdiction. We take great care in hand selecting each piece. On occasion we will show some work from Southwest artists that are not Native American. These artists will be identified along with the item offered and you will receive a Certificate of Authenticity with these pieces as well. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase please return within 10 days of receipt of purchase for a 100% refund. Please note: If we are running a discount special on shipping, such as "Free Shipping", then the refund will be the less our actual shipping charges.
All measurements noted for each item are as accurate as possible.
