Indian Market in Santa Fe is the highlight of the summer season in the Land of Enchantment.
So it’s no surprise that in solidarity with Indian Market, Local Flavor’s August issue brings you a look at artists in Northern New Mexico’s Native American community, from potters to fashion designers who are designing some of the most recognizable indian clothes, gallerists, chefs and storytellers; all of whom contribute to the glorious tapestry of their living Cultural Heritage.
Local Flavor’s Editor Cullen Curtiss, fills us in on what’s new between the covers of this month’s issue on the stands now.
Juanita Christine from the Jemez Pueblo graces the magazine’s cover with her Singular Couture David Naranjo coat called Tsay Puu Pho (Eagle Tail Feather). Learn more about the owner’s background and intention, as well as each artist’s process. localflavor/singular couture
Angie Yazzie of the Taos Pueblo continues her people’s tradition of making pottery, winning highest accolades at 2017’s SWAIA Nest in Pottery, Best in Classification, and Best in Division.
