Eiteljorg Museum 1998 Indian Market

 

Families can take part in educational activities during the Eiteljorg Museum's annual Indian Market. Here, a child tries his hand at a "hide" painting. Children and adults can take home their creations.

 

Children can create imaginative crafts based on Native American arts in the children's activities tent. T-shirts, posters and inexpensive Native American crafts and games will be for sale by the White River Trader, the museum gift shop. Collectors and guests can get the first look at the artists' work at a preview party on Friday, June 26.

A panel of Native American artists will award more than $13,000 in prize money in 39 categories.

 

 

 

Artist Rollie Grandbois, Chippewa (Turtle Mountain), gets much of his inspiration from his family. This sculpture of carved steatite is called "Mother and Child" and will be on sale at the Indian Market.
