Native and Indigenous artists and crafts persons are preferred vendors.

The vendor must guarantee that any Native or Indigenous made art, jewelry, or other merchandise offered for sale is genuinely created by Native artists, as defined by the Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990, which prohibits the sale, display, or distribution of products falsely advertised as Native-made.

Vendors should obtain and retain proper documentation from Native artists, such as certificates of authenticity, Tribal enrollment verifications, or other credible forms of evidence that demonstrate the legitimacy of the artwork and the artist's Native heritage.

In the event of any dispute regarding the authenticity or provenance of Native artwork, vendors should have a clear process in place to address customer concerns, including providing refunds or exchanges if necessary, while maintaining compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

By adhering to these guidelines, vendors can help foster trust and integrity in the Native art market while honoring the rich cultural heritage of Native artists and their Nations.
