Southwest Native American Art
Southwest Indian art is probably the most distinctive and certainly the best-known of Native American artistic traditions, both because the southwestern tribes were highly settled peoples for whom things like twelve-foot high looms were practical, and because most southwestern tribes have remained in or at least near their ancestral lands, suffering less interruption of their tribal traditions than the eastern tribes. Southwest Indian designs are instantly recognizable and have saturated the American mainstream, their characteristic geometric patterns visible everywhere from cowboy hats to Arizona's state flag; sanitized Kokopelli silhouettes festoon lawns in New Mexico the way gnomes in pointy hats do in Pennsylvania. But Southwestern Indian art forms have not only influenced the popular culture of the region at large, they also remain as thriving, unbroken artistic traditions of the native people who first created them. Arts and crafts Southwest Indian artists are best known for include the kachina dolls of the Hopi and sandpaintings of the Navajo; in the anticipatory rush at the opening of a antique or toy sale or in the last desultory minutes before packing up and closing down. All that aside, Toys and antiques steadily keep going up in value
