The IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) Store offers an extraordinary collection of both contemporary and traditional jewelry, basketry, pottery, paintings, and prints created by well-known Native American artists. Santa Fe’s most expansive assortment of books on Native American arts and crafts, tribal history, biographies, and literature can also be found in the Museum Store. In addition, there is an extensive selection of DVDs and CDs.
The walls of the Museum Store are sure to draw attention from both serious art aficionados and curious browsers. Colorful new paintings by IAIA Alumni Darol G. Nez (Navajo/Sioux), Bryan D. Parker (Muskogee Creek/Choctaw), and Monty Little (Dine) are prominently displayed and priced to sell.
The Museum Store has exciting news about its jewelry selection too. We are the only store in Santa Fe to feature the bold and extraordinary pieces by the renowned Chickasaw artist, Kristen Dorsey. The Museum Store is privileged to be able to show Kristen’s “Panther Woman” collection. Panther Woman was a historic figure who lived in the 1800’s and is remembered for being a brilliant female battle strategist. Panther Woman’s accomplishments inspired Kristen to create a line for the modern female warrior whose motto is, “Never conquered. Always fearless.”
Kristen Dorsey works in sterling silver and rose gold, and she uses both semi-precious and precious stones to adorn her metalwork. Objects from her Panther Woman collection were featured in Los Angeles Fashion.
