Paula says - "In my opinion, this necklace shows all the design characteristics and workmanship of being Native American made, either Navajo or Santo Domingo. But because there is no hallmark that we can attribute tto a specific artist we can't legally sell it as Native American made - read more."

Cryer Creek Collection Cryer Creek Collection

The jewelry and artifacts in this collection were gathered by a man born in 1933 and who has been collecting for over 60 years. He has a great love of Native American people, their culture and customs and their art. Living and working most of his life in Texas, he has been particularly drawn to Lakota, Comanche, Apache, Pueblo, Navajo and Zuni pieces. We will be listing items from his collection over the next year, so keep an eye on the Newly Listed Items page.

Chiclets - In 1906 the American Chicle Company.began making a hard-shelled, candy-coated white peppermint gum called chiclets. By 1920, Chiclets were available in bright colors: yellow, green, orange, red, white, and pink. Native americans, most specifically santo domingo artists, began calling their colorful, multi-stone necklaces “chiclet necklaces”, and it is easy to see why. Read more.

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 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.
