Authentic North American Indian Arts and Crafts
RedTail Market promotes cultural preservation through a community of North American Native artists committed to expressing their way of life through their work.
RedTail Market supports the North American Native artist community by maximizing exposure of their work and facilitating convenient, secure, global transactions of their sales through an online marketplace exclusively for authentic North American Native art, crafted and gathered items.
Restorative Cultural Enrichment
Through the imagination and creativity of the artist’s and crafter’s hand they tell a story without words. The artwork, crafted and gathered goods you will find here are expressions of a culture rich in pride and respect. Learning the hand skills required in materials preparation and the many production techniques take time to master. Each work of art is a leg of the journey along the endless road of mastery. Each piece holds a story, not always of the past but at times a thought provoking peek into our future seven generations from now. Authentic North American Native artwork always speaks to the heart.
Every North American Native product is an expression of people who respect and appreciate everything provided to them by mother earth. Nothing is insignificant. Using all of the resources we have been given in a responsible way is a gesture of gratitude and respect. At RedTail Market it is our deepest hope that in their success Native artists and crafters involve more Native youth in their work for the purpose of sustaining millenium-old cultural teachings.
For sellers (artisans / crafters) who join RedTail Market, this is a place to celebrate the cause and spirit in which North American Native artisans conduct their work, a place of global recognition. A place to unify as one group practicing skills taught thousands of years ago. And for buyers (visitors / members) it is a place to explore and appreciate the traditions of the many Bands and Tribes of North American Native peoples.
RedTail Market is more than an online place to buy and sell authentic Indian art. It is a forum to express the North American Native way of life. Let us pay homage to all the elders who have shared their wisdom with us by doing our work with vivid imagination and creativity. Let the stories in the work be our contribution to all of our cultures' enrichment. Take pride but most of all...enjoy.
