A call for Native American artists has gone out from the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts (SWAIA) to apply for the 2023 Santa Fe Indian Market. SWAIA is the non-profit organization who produces the annual Indian market that attracts buyers from around the globe. 

This year’s market will be held on August 19 and August 20, in downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico.  SWAIA’s theme for the 2023 market is “101 Years of Indigenous Excellence.” As the world’s oldest and most prestigious Native North American art market, Santa Fe Indian Market has been showcasing the work of the best Native North American artists for over one hundred years in all ten market categories.
