Artists Extend Support
SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO - An independent group of American Indian artisans is seeking assistance in order to provide help to Japan, which was hit by one of the world’s worst recorded earthquakes that registered 8.9 on the Richter scale; the subsequent tsunami; and explosions and fires at a nuclear plant.
The group’s mission statement states in part:
“ Because Japan has been a big supporter of Native American arts, providing income to artists, it is out of our hearts as artists to raise funds for water, food, and basic necessities.”
On April 5, the group will auction art on eBay. The group hopes to auction as many as 15 pieces of art.
All money raised will be given to the American Red Cross to distribute to those in need in Japan.
The group has posted a website to get its message out to Indian Country: Click Here »
