  • I was had heard about this museum but had only set aside a few hours to see it. I should have planned for the whole day. There is so much to see and do. I learned a lot but will have to go back again.

  • This museum is a true treasure. The exhibits are well-thought out and provide a fantastic and compelling glimpse into many aspects of Native American culture. The building itself and the grounds are also lots of fun to explore; it is a place that you want to spend as much time in as possible. There is much more to experience than is apparent at first glance. My wife and I also went during the annual Indian fair, so there was so much more to see and do during our visit. The gift store was quite impressive, and had many items for sale that compared favorably with what the fair artisans had to offer.
  • I think this was a good year in a long time. Although I have not calculated my sales, yet. Saturday was a good, today it started a little slow and somewhat picked up a little bit more towards closing. I am happy with this years market. I thank all of you who makes this show possible and I'm very very thankful that you invited me back again. I hope to get invited again for next year and on into the future, while I am still able to make my jewelry.
