Riassunto: A history of the Navajo business enterprise that successfully markets tribal arts and crafts.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 4 Up?The Navajo are known for their unique turquoise and silver jewelry and wool rugs. In an attempt to find a fair market for these artisans' work and to establish quality control, the tribal government formed the Navajo Arts & Crafts Guild in 1940. In 1972, it was renamed the Navajo Arts & Crafts Enterprise (NACE). The soaring price of silver in the 1970s and public demand for Indian jewelry during that period almost put the organization out of business. The board of directors brought in retired Navajo Tribal Council member Raymond Smith in 1977 to try and turn the business around. Since then, NACE has grown into a multimillion-dollar venture, with retail stores all over the reservation and in several border towns. This unique presentation describes the history and growth of NACE. Profiles of various administrators and several of the silversmiths and weavers whose work is sold to NACE round out the presentation. Black-and-white photos appear on almost every page. A directory of Native American arts and crafts organizations concludes the book. An informative title, but one with limited appeal to children.?Lisa Mitten, University of Pittsburgh, PA
