The Haskell Indian Art Market returns this weekend for the first time since 2019, offering jewelry, pottery, carvings, paintings, clothing and other handmade pieces by Native American artists for sale.

Hosted by Haskell Indian Nations University, the two-day market returns after a three-year hiatus due to COVID-19. Attendees can browse and purchase original artwork, as well as traditional Native American foods like Indian tacos.


“It provides an economic opportunity for Native American artists and promotes cross-cultural understanding and exchange,” said Steff Fernando, coordinator of the Haskell Indian Art Market, of this weekend’s event. “The market also provides Haskell Indian Nations University with an opportunity to showcase its staff, students and resources to the community, and to the extent possible, Haskell’s resources are used to provide services such as food and entertainment. for the market.

“We are grateful to have our students back and without their help this event would not happen.”

The market will be held on Saturday, September 3 from 10am to 6pm and Sunday, September 4 from 10am to 5pm at the Haskell Pow Wow Grounds, 2535 W. Perimeter Road in Lawrence. Live entertainment is scheduled for 12pm, 2pm and 4pm on both days.

Both entry and parking are free, but attendees are encouraged to bring cash to purchase items as food vendors only accept cash, Fernando said. Some artists may only accept cash, others may offer other payment options. There will be an ATM on site for those who need it.

The organizers also point out that pets, with the exception of service animals, are not allowed and masks are optional.
