Paula says - "In my opinion, these Buttons show all the design characteristics and workmanship of being Navajo made. But because we are unable to attribute them to a specific artist we can't legally sell them as Native American made - read more."

What is Cross Path?

One of the beliefs of the Navajo is that its people should remain within the boundaries of its Nation which happen to be four mountains. By staying with the Navajo Nation, the people will remain at one with Nature and spirit. And by remaining within these boundaries they are likely to meet all other Navajo within their lifetime. They say they will cross paths with all within the four corners.

 

NOTE: Items in our Vintage Shop are either USED or NEW. They might come from inheritances, estate sales, private collections, and store liquidations. Many items are brand new (NOS, New Old Stock) and in perfect condition while others may show tarnish, scratches and other signs of use. Major issues will be described in detail and shown in photos. Vintage Shop items are sold as described and are not returnable.
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.
