Why “Trickster”?

In many cultures throughout the world, a singular figure exists to create and provoke thought on

anything from the imaginary to real life experience.

This figure comes in many forms and is called many names. For Native Americans, this figure is called “Trickster” in the English language. Native people are taught by this figure who generates life lessons when we least expect it.

The Trickster Gallery appropriates its name from

this figure because the Native American community

welcomes the idea of thought, cultural sharing and interaction for giving lessons of understanding about our modern Indian society.

Trickster Gallery is the place where the Native voice can be seen and heard, to paint a different picture about Natives American culture, and to celebrate a living culture through the lenses of contemporary Native Artists.

Trickster Gallery honors the past by sharing our present-day lives while projecting ideas for future generations.

  • There's something powerful about Native American art and jewelry . What are you talking about? Well! Traveling through Arizona some time ago I stopped at the souvenir stand run by Navajo tribe. There was a young girl selling Native American jewelry so I asked her to sell me something for the protection against bad woman. She hand me over a necklace with an arrow . That's gonna work for you, sir. Since then I'm single. Ha ha ha ---shot up, ghost.
  • Went while visiting family. They were in the process of repainting, so not all the displays were not all available. However, the staff was very accommodating. We were shown the available exhibits and given good information about the pieces. The gallery upstairs was beautiful. I will absolutely visit when I'm in town next time. I can't wait to see the whole place in its usual glory
