Condensed by Native Village

New Mexico: Every August since 1922, the largest Native American Indian arts market takes place in downtown Santa Fe. The Santa Fe Indian Market brings together the most gifted Native American artists with millions of visitors and collectors from around the world.

The extended weekend of beauty and celebration is world's largest and most highly acclaimed Native American arts show.  It's also the most-attended annual weekend event in New Mexico.

The Native American Clothing Contest (NACC) is a major highlight of the Santa Fe Indian Market.  The pageant is unrivaled in Indian country, and is the IMarket's most-photographed event. Models of all ages wear finery of beads, feathers, fringe and turquoise.

But it's the youngsters who steal the show.
