THE SOUTHWEST MUSEUM PRESENTS AN INTERTRIBAL MARKETPLACE

 THE SOUTHWEST MUSEUM PRESENTS AN INTERTRIBAL MARKETPLACE
 LOS ANGELES, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Southwest Museum in Los Angeles will be presenting an Intertribal Marketplace; a celebration of Native American Indian artisans Nov. 6-8. Approximately 35-50 individuals representing many tribal affiliations from throughout the United States will display their arts and crafts; some will demonstrate the techniques that have given them recognition as nationally known mastercraftsmen. Among the items that will be available for purchase are contemporary sculptured works, paintings, jewelry, pottery, baskets, kachina dolls, weavings, hand-sewn creations, beadwork, moccasins, toys and many other items ranging from traditional to purely unique in design. This will be an excellent pre-holiday resource for the discriminate collector and for those who wish to celebrate with the Southwest Museum a very special holiday season with the Indian community. Dances from the Plains, Pueblo and Apache groups, Indian music, food and drink will be included in the weekend festivities.
 The event is a continuing part of the Southwest Museum's interactive program of events, lectures and exhibitions that continue to salute the contemporary as well as traditional Native American Indian community. Artisans will be on-site to discuss their work. This yearly event follows the highly successful Hopi Indian Marketplace and the Urban American Indian Art Expo. Its purpose is to emphasize the creativity and innovativeness of American Indian artisans while reaffirming the Southwest Museum's commitment to this community by continuing to advance the general public's awareness about the importance of modern American Indian cultures. Toward this end, the Southern California Indian Center, the Indian Health Community program, the Intertribal Veterans of Los Angeles County and other important social venues will be on site to discuss their individual programs.
 The public is urged to become a regular participant in the events, and to become a member of Southwest Museum. While attending this event, also visit the unique Southwest Museum Store.
 Intertribal Marketplace is a special pre-holiday event. Admission is the price of the museum admission fee: adults $5, seniors and students $3, ages 7-18 $2, and 6 and under and members free of charge. The Southwest Museum is located at the corner of Marmion Way and Museum Drive (234 Museum Dr.) in the highland park area of Los Angeles. Call 213-221-2164 for more information.
