Native America Calling
January 25, 2017 @ 2:00 am - 3:00 am
A new law in Oklahoma says only enrolled members of federally recognized tribes can label and sell their art as “Native made.” That means artists from tribes recognized only by states are out of luck. Those in support of the law-including several tribes-say it protects the integrity of Native art. But others–like Peggy Fontenot, an artist from a state recognized tribe–say the law tramples on her rights. Do you think we need stricter arts and crafts laws? Is it fair for a state to determine who is Native or not?
