Indian Market in Santa Fe New Mexico is an annual art market beginning on the third Thursday which runs through the third weekend of August. One of the largest American Indian markets in the country , it is recognized as the largest juried show of American Indian Art in the world. I have been fortunate to witness the event for ten years. There is music, art ,food and an atmosphere that is nothing like I have experienced any where.
Mr. Jackson was introduced to the market four years ago and every June he starts talking about what we are going to do and who we are going to see.
Santa Fe is a special place. Indian Market brings many people to this little town of adobe buildings. For some, the experience keeps them coming back.
The diversity-native american,latino,hispanic and anglo cultures co-exist.
Art-a community which is recognized as one of the art capitals of the world.
Community-A sophistication among adobe buildings which resonates in its food,culture and politics.
It's a worldly place without traffic and the noise. A place of refuge and discovery. The highest state capital in the country at 7,000 feet, Santa Fe is a glorious combination of the artistic and the historic cultures that have lived in this country for centuries. My secret is now yours--
