Tribal Art - What's authentic and Why it matters

This embedded video features Tony Eriacho, Zuni artist and Indian Art authenticity activist, who talks about issues of authentic Indian art and their ramifications. Tony is a friend and trusted authority. I think the video is worth 8 minutes of your time.

We at Aboriginals: Art of the First Person have been members of the Indian Arts and crafts Association for 20 years and are strong believers in the principles that Tony advocates. We apply them to every thing we offer at ZuniLink, Native-JewelryLink, Native-PotteryLink and TribalWorks.

We invite your inspection and your questions.

The video though created a year ago was pretty informative. I found tony a bit shy while facing a camera :D
