Paula says - "Excellent workmanship on a classic sterling silver twist bracelet. This bracelet is like the style Robert Redford wore in The Horse Whisperer movie.
"These bracelets are NOS (new old stock) that came from store inventory in the Window Rock, Arizona reservation circa 1975. They were remaining after a gift store closed and are brand new vintage!"

Why isn't this item called Native American?
The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
