|Why do we group Native art and natural art together in this group? I did this simply because many Native American crafts are made from natural materials.|
All materials must be naturally forested--no harming animals or plants. Leatherwork or taxidermy is fine, as long as the animal was not killed specifically for that purpose and you used the entire animal, without wasting any part of it.
Feel free to give us your etsy or ebay link if you sell nature or Native American crafts (or supplies related to those things). We'll feature the link and what you sell in group info if you need to get your shop started. The list will be started here:

This group is to honor those artists inspired by nature and Native American cultures. We love nature and Native cultures and we won't tolerate any hate for it. This group recognizes that there are many Native cultures that are still thriving today. If you, in any way, disrespect a Native tribe, you will be blocked. If you are confused on what is disrespectful, please visit thisisnotnative.tumblr.com and check out the links they provide.
Don't submit to the featured folder. Leave that up to me. ^_^ I've been letting that one slide because I don't want to reject something I want in the group, but I ask that you PLEASE leave submitting to featured up to me. Anything that goes in featured will also be in their respected folders.
Anyone here is allowed, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexuality, religion, or tribe. You can make Native art without being Native American. But remember, we're all here in this group to coexist and to love each other and our earth. So please, no hate art. I will delete it.
If you break any of these rules, I'll send you a message with a warning. If you continue to break rules, I'll consider banning you from the group.
To those who do not know what the Mesoamerican art folder is for, it's basically for artwork of the Mayan/Incan/Olmec/Aztec/etc tribes.
Also, I would like to remind you of the Indian Arts and Crafts Law that prohibits anyone from selling/marketing an object as Native American if they are not from an indigenous Native American tribe. Please, if you are selling and are not Native American, do not market your items as authentic Native American crafts. Thank you!
Thanks guys for cooperating! We're also accepting related affiliates if you want to affiliate your group.
