Another Stereotype of the Month entry:
Ms. Squaw Indian Art, Crafts, and Jewelry
is proud to be Indian owned and operated.
We are Western Shoshone from Nevada.
The traditional name for our people is "Newe."
Our ancestors were true hunter/gatherers -
who lived a simple, nomadic lifestyle.
We were a peaceful people who lived in a tough environment -- the high desert.
We believe in close ties and working together for our common good.
We still think of sports as hunting and fishing.
We have been sharing the creative products of our people for almost 30 years and are willing to assure that your business will flourish -- so that ours will also.
has been in business since 1973 -
which was long before it was politically "incorrect" to use the word squaw.
we don't really mind if you call us squaw as long as you call (write or fax) us with an order.
