The Potlatch

That last post reminded me of an amazing store in Incline Village, Lake Tahoe that a friend took me to in May: The Potlatch. They have been buying from reservations from years, which I understand (I know nothing about these things but am hoping to learn) is a fairly rare thing. They have stunning Native American artwork, including this piece which I am determined to buy at some point. He's $600:

They also had an amazing buffalo head, I'm not usually drawn to such things, they feel a little cruel for me, but this was amazing, and also apparently quite rare. $3,600 from memory but don't quote me on that!
