Native art by the Indian tribes of the southeastern United States remains hidden from most of the country. Many factors contribute to this unfortunate situation. Tribal members tend to be part of mainstream American society and do not depend on their art for a living. Hence, there are fewer artists creating art and most are not as prolific because they have other jobs. Designs tend to be subtle, with understated yet stunning color combinations a distinguishing trademark. Many superb artists from southeastern tribes attract serious collectors. Since I started buying art over ten years ago, prices have increased more than 300% and demand accordingly.
