Pino Nuche Indigenous Art Market and Juried Show

August 4-6, 2023
Sky Ute Casino and Resort, Ignacio, CO

Mykah, our show is committed to promoting and advancing Native artists. The emphasis of the show is on traditional, quality arts and crafts, handmade, one at a time, by Native Americans. Skill and quality are emphasized and valued. We are also committed to making our show affordable for artists and to helping artists achieve their artistic and business goals.

A Local Host Committee oversees the show and serves as judges for the Juried Show. Members of the Host Committee are Lindsay J. Box, Russell Box, Sr., Oreland Joe, Sr., Norman Lansing, and Elise Redd.

Please join us in Ignacio this year.
