This is such an amazing resource! We have some Navaho auiya/oiya(I really don't know the correct spelling) baskets that have been in my family for over a century now we finally know where to take them!
Thank you for this information.

Gloria: Yes the Aborigines have been very aggressive about renewing and retaining their land rights. There now is a scheme to assure the Aboriginal artists of extra payments when their art is resold in Australia. Frankly, I think this could have some unfortunate unintended consequences for the artists. But let's watch and see
