Distinguishing Authentic Native Work from ImitationsAt Shumakolowa Native Arts

Education workshop: Distinguishing Authentic Native Work from Imitations – Isaac Valenzuela (Acoma & Navajo) of Shumakolowa Native Arts instructs visitors on identifying imported jewelry and synthetic and block stones when shopping for authentic Native American jewelry. Native-made jewelry is beloved for its beautiful craftsmanship and use of age-old materials like turquoise, coral, and sterling silver, but that popularity has a dark side: unscrupulous dealers turn to cheap forgeries and fakes to make a profit off unsuspecting art lovers. Learn critical information from our expert on how to shop wisely and responsibly, ensuring your purchases are genuine and support Native artisans. Free.

This event date has changed from October 9th to October 11th.
