As an IACA member, you are a part of a very unique family that brings together
every aspect of the American Indian Art world … from the American Indian artist to
the American Indian art collector.
Yours is the only association that is dedicated to the preservation and protection of
artistic and cultural expression that stretches back into long ago times, and continues
through this day.
Yours is the only association to provide educational opportu-
nities, through the Indian Arts and Crafts Association Educa-
tion Fund, for artists, wholesale and retail establishments, and
for collectors to better understand and enjoy the complexities
of the arts and cultures of the American Indian art marketplace
today.
As we enter 2012, you will see many enhancements to our vi-
brant 37 year-old association, including the new quarterly
IACA Journal, a re-vitalized website, and a host of new educa-
tional materials, especially for you.
During the past year IACA grew faster than any year in our history. I personally
hope that trend continues as more and more people realize the purpose of IACA, and
the benefits of membership in IACA.
Joe Zeller IACA President
IACA-EF is dedicated to its mission: to build cultural preservation and appre-
