Jesse Hummingbird was the

1997 IACA artist of the year,

and in his interpretation figured

that Geronimo would be a great

protector of the arts.

A limited number of the 11” x

17” poster is being offered by

the Indian Arts and Crafts As-

sociation Education Fund as a

gift to people who donate to the

IACA-Education Fund.

To learn how you can receive

this classic poster, you can visit

We love this retro classic post-

er. It is a great addition to any

American Indian art collection.

And, it helps to support a great

cause.

For 40 Years the Indian Arts

and Crafts Association has

strived to protect authentic

American Indian art from the

overwhelming amount of imi-

tations and imports that flood

the market.

The IACA recently has released

a limited number of classic Jes-

se Hummingbird posters from

its archives, which now are

contained at the Heard Muse-

um.

Howes Cave, New York is a bit off of the beaten path, somewhere northwest of

Albany in the heart of Iroquois Country. Ancient caves in the area invite ama-

teur spelunkers to explore without any equipment at all. Howes Cave also is

home to the Iroquois Indian Museum, an educational place that fosters under-

standing of the Iroquois culture through art.

The museum is a longhouse that recalls the traditional Iroquois longhouse of

elm bark found in the area over 400 years ago. It houses perhaps the finest col-

lection of contemporary Iroquois found anywhere as well as an extensive histor-

ic collection and a library containing original documents that date back to the

1600’s.

Surrounding the museum is a 45 acre nature park where you are introduced to

the Iroquois view of nature, including Mother Earth, Elder Brother Sun, and

the three sisters, Corn, Beans and Squash.

Whether you are decorat-

ing your home or are an

avid collector of fine

American Indian art, you

will find River Trading

Post has a great mix of

historic and contemporary

art from over 50 tribal

nations.

Come visit. Enjoy!

Three Great Collector Experiences

Guided and self guided tours take visitors through

stream and river, through shagbark hickory stands

and fields of wildflowers where one may encoun-

ter deer, raccoon, woodchucks and an occasional

beaver.

A trip to Iroquois country and to the Iroquois

Indian Museum is a rewarding experience, and is

one of our favorite places.

The Iroquois Indian Museum is situated in a traditional

longhouse
