Hello Tribal Artery fans:
This weekend we posted a lot of wolf, fox and coyote fetish carvings to our Zuni Link Website at http://www.zunilink.com/ On the home page, click on the wolves/foxes/coyotes link near the bottom of the page. There actually are three pages, so if you are interested in the wolf/fox/coyote family, pick any oneof them and then click through to the others. And don't overlook the carvers' pages, where wolves et al have been posted because they were done by carvers such Tsalabutie, Quam and Lena Boone.
We've also reorganized and updated our jewelry pages at http://www.native-jewelrylink.com/. Many pieces were sold and they have been replaced by new ones. We never stop being amazed by the artistry and inspiration of jewelry makers from Zuni, Navajo, Isleta, Santa Domingo and other peoples.
Periodically, we receive orders from people who bypass the order form. When the orders arrive we wonder if there was something wrong with the order form. Of course, we welcome orders no matter how they arrive. But we become concerned that a malfunctioning order form may discourage some potential buyers. So we run a test on the form and it inevitably works. So what is going on? If you have been frustrated by our order form we would like to hear from you. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. That's also the sure way to get an order to us, if all else fails.
Gordon Bronitsky at New Mexico Culture is working on an idea to send a Hispanic- Native American entertainment troupe to the Marianas Islands in the South Pacific. If you have an interest in supporting such an effort, you can reach Gordon at email@example.com
Our friend Clint at the Free Spirit Gallery announces the arrival of a number of salmon carving plaques from G. Baker. He also runs a blog called IndianInuitArt.

As you know, we offer tribal art from Africa and Australia, too, at http://www.tribalworks.com/ We received an email messages from another gallery with Australian Aboriginal art in their dillybag. BookerLowe's proprietors were coming to Captiva and we suggested a cup of coffee to discuss common interests. Turns out that their home on Captiva still was not repaired from Hurricane Charley and they were tied up with repair people so we never got to see them. Perhaps next time.
On the African front, we have become impressed with works in the collection at http://www.randafricanart.com/ If you are interested, it's worth a visit.
By the way, we are not paid for mentioning anyone in this blog. We do it because we think these are good sources and we want to share them with our readers.
That's all for this issue. We'll see you next time, whenever that is.
