SWAIA Brings Native Arts to the World by
  • Inspiring artistic excellence
  • Fostering education, and
  • Creating meaningful partnerships
SWAIA is the nonprofit organization that juries and presents Santa Fe Indian Market, the world’s largest, most highly acclaimed Native American arts market.

SWAIA must raise over $1 million every year to make Santa Fe Indian Market happen. Without your financial support, Indian Market—and the hundreds of year-round lectures, education programs and seminars—could not exist. (Note: SWAIA takes no percentage of artists’ sales.)

Your membership contribution supports

  • Artist fellowships
  • Over $100,000 in artist awards
  • Sustaining and presenting the foremost Native Arts Market in the world
  • Winter Indian Market
  • Lectures, education programs and special events
  • Artist seminars, studio tours and workshops
  • Native Artist gallery exhibitions
  • General operational support associated with the daily operation of SWAIA
  • Photo Archive: 95 years of historical photographs and invaluable records on Native Arts, Artists and Santa Fe Indian Market
Thank you for becoming a member today!
