Native America Calling: A fair value for Native artists
Tuesday, January 10, 2023

A fair value for Native artists
Federal law already protects artwork legitimately made by Native Americans.

But once artwork is sold, the artists typically don’t benefit from any residual appreciation of the work’s value. Some Native-owned galleries and organizations are working to ensure artists get full value for their work.

And an effort in Canada aims to pay artists and their heirs resale rights.

Antonia Gonzales is on the road this week. Before she got to Anchorage for the AFN Convention, she stopped by Pike Place Market in Seattle to visit the #Native store Eighth Generation and speak with Yamileteh Diaz.
