First Peoples’ Market.

The Ninth First Peoples’ Market in 2016 offered the work of fine Native American artists and craftspeople, and included both deeply traditional crafts and more contemporary artistic expressions rooted in Native American experience. Artists in this market represent some of the finest working today. Some have been recognized nationally for their skill and talent in a variety of beautiful art forms. These have included painting, antler carving, parfleche works, hide paintings, ledger art, star quilting, doll making, jewelry, and many other forms of expression of traditional techniques. See what some of the finest Native American artists from throughout the region brought to show at the 2016 First Peoples' Market in Butte, Montana and plan to join us when the market returns again July 7-9, 2017.
