Paula says - "In my opinion, these pendants show all the design characteristics and workmanship of being Navajo made. But because there are no hallmarks that we can attribute to a specific artist we can't legally sell them as Native American made - read more.
"These are very old pendants, perhaps from the 1930s to 1950s, and after 75 years the sales tags have really adhered! We are showing the backs as-is so you can see the history and the markings. You can leave the tags on the back for historical reasons or use nail polish remover.

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 Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
