Our Native American Art Auctions have become our biggest fundraising events and they enable us to, in part, support our scholarship program, support the park in its endeavors, and fund other special events. The main purpose of each auction is to provide economic assistance to the artists and community. In the many years that the Friends group has run the auction, we have returned over $3,000,000 to the Native American communities through the artists who consign items into the auction since 1990. Our sales and auction process returns approximately 85 cents of every dollar sold to the Native American community. There is no sale tax or entrance fee for the buyers. The FoH Native American Art Auctions are held in May and September. We spend the week before the auction accepting items from Native American artists including Navajo, Hopi, and other Puebloan tribes. Generally, we have 400+ items entered. The auction has been called the best-kept secret in the Southwest but we still attract bidders from both coasts and all over because of the exceptional value and authenticity of the auction items.
