DescriptionTo Walk in Beauty takes readers on the journey of the Begay family of Jeddito Wash, Arizona, on the Navajo Reservation. This is an intimate portrait of a family's decision to return to the Navajo reservation to reclaim its cultural identity. The book highlights in intensely personal terms the sense of cultural dissolution long associated with the tragedy of Navajo history, providing a window on a culture not often seen by outsiders. Uplifting and moving, it examines the spiritual healing that can take place when cultural identity is reclaimed.

Our Guarantee of Authenticity
At the Indian Pueblo Store 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. At a time when many commercially-made products are being sold as handcrafted Native American art, our in-depth purchase process allows us to guarantee the authenticity of every unique piece of fine art we offer. For more than 35 years, we have made it a priority to visit artists in their studio or home to purchase their latest handcrafted pieces and learn about their work. We have developed lasting relationships with artists, as well as dealers and collectors, and we take pride in being a trusted destination for fine Native American art.
