This page depicts the diversity of Native American Art, yesterday and today. It represents a collection of highly unusual, sometimes impossible to find traditional items that reflect the spirit and enduring will of Native America through the ages. 

It also represents Native American Art that is created from non-traditional materials, especially glass, that shows each of us how top Native American Artists continue their cultural tradition through new media.

 These collections represent the results of our efforts to bring you the opportunity to learn about Native America and to participate, in a small way, in the magnificent history and art of The People.

Jill Shwaiko Limited Editions

This group of images comes from my study of ancient civilizations and their artwork. I was fortunate to go and visit a number of the Anasazi ruins in the Southwest. There, I studied the rock art of the area and found the big horn sheep petroglyphs to have a language of their own. I began developing these images into bronzes and oil pastels. During this process, I felt them speaking to me; sometimes in quite an endearing way.

Other Diverse Art Forms

In the Hopi culture, the groom and his male relatives weave fine wedding clothes for the bride, a process that may take months.

The bride will appear dressed in the white wedding robe, white deerskin boots and a black manta.  Her face will be painted white, and in her arms she will carry another robe identical to the one that she is wearing.  The second robe will be in a “suitcase” made of willow twigs,  and rain sash symbolizing fertility. She eventually will be wrapped in that one when her life ends, and she will be buried in it for her trip to the cloud country, where cloud people reside.

Today, such a rare ensemble (right) is on display, and available at River Trading Post, Scottsdale.  It includes two wedding robes, a reed wrapping mat, moccasins, and rain sash.
