Stolen Item Alert

As members of the Antique Tribal Art Dealers Association (ATADA), we periodically receive alerts concerning items of tribal art that have been reported stolen. Experience suggests that wide dissemination of the alert to those who buy, collect or deal in tribal art can lead either to the arrest of the thief or suppression of the item's value as it is a crime to possess stolen property.

The latest alert concerns a three-stone turquoise Navajo bracelet.

More information about the stolen item and other stolen items reported to ATADA can be found at this link.

Aboriginals: Art of the First Person and its subsidiary web site, are happy to support ATADA's efforts to discourage the theft of tribal art by reposting these alerts.
