Marcia Keegan's latest book is a chronicle of the similarities between two ancient cultures that have sustained the human legacy through epochs of change. While our current worldview has been shaped by the Renaissance in Europe and the Industrial Revolution, the Native American and Tibetan Cultures were thriving in a world of isolation from modernity, maintaining their own traditions handed down through their elders.

Our Guarantee of Authenticity
At Shumakolowa Native Arts, we guarantee that your purchase is an original and authentic work handcrafted by Native American artists as defined by the Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990. We ask our artists to complete an extensive certification process, providing a CIB (Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood) card and other documentation of their Native American heritage. Our team of experts carefully inspects every product to guarantee it is handcrafted using traditional, sustainable processes and natural materials of only the highest quality. We record the place and date of each purchase and pride ourselves in paying a fair price that allows artists to make a living practicing their craft.
