WHAT IS THE NORTHEAST INDIGENOUS ARTISTS HOLIDAY MARKET?

This is a virtual market utilizing the Facebook group "Northeast Indigenous Artists Holiday Market" as a platform. It was created in 2020 by the Aquinnah Cultural Center (ACC) and Northeast Indigenous Artist Alliance (NIAA) to help support Indigenous artists in a safe, socially distant manner.

HOW DOES THE MARKET WORK?

Indigenous artists from the Northeast will participate BY INVITATION ONLY. Invited artists post their own original artwork for sale or links to websites selling their original artwork on the Northeast Indigenous Artists Holiday Market Facebook page.
