We want to acknowledge our community of Native artists in the United States and Canada who are impacted by the Coronavirus global health crisis.
In 2021, Indian Market will celebrate its Centennial. We have endured many challenges in the past 99 years, always maintaining our mission "Bringing Native arts to the world by inspiring artistic excellence, fostering education, and creating meaningful partnerships."
As of today, March 26, 2020, we are proceeding with the 99th Annual Santa Fe Indian Market on August 15 and 16.
While we remain hopeful for the sake of our artists and visitors, we are exploring potential postponement strategies and virtual solutions should we receive a mandate from the Governor that large public gatherings are prohibited this summer in Santa Fe.
SWAIA supports Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and the New Mexico Department of Health in their efforts to mitigate the potential community spread of COVID-19. Compliance with the State’s proactive measures will save lives, which is the priority of SWAIA and the state of New Mexico during this public health emergency.
We understand the potential gravity of the situation for all Native artists who rely on Indian Market as a huge economic opportunity each year. Should this year’s market be postponed, we will work tirelessly to innovate alternate opportunities to sustain our Native artists’ revenue streams throughout the crisis.
Sincerely, The Board and Staff of SWAIA
