Welcome to The Woodland Indian Art Show and Market
The Woodland Indian Art Show and Market has been produced for six years in a row by a group of volunteers here on the Oneida Reservation. Our website is the base for this emerging art organization.
Those who work on this art show each year believe it is vital that native tribes hold onto their unique cultural identity by celebrating their respective diverse native art forms and styles. Too often, native culture and arts are viewed as one culture, the same in every tribe.
By bringing Woodland Indian Artists together we plan to raise awareness of the distinct artistic styles of northern United States and Canada , and to help create a growing economy of sales of their art work.

The Woodland Indian Art Show and Market includes multiple generations, tribes, and styles. We have artists that work in contemporary and traditional Native Woodland Arts. We have Native elder and younger artists working together. We have Native elders teaching Native young people. And we have Native young people volunteering and working administratively with the elder artists. We are always looking for more volunteers. If this sounds interesting to you, please call and we will keep you informed.
The head judges for the 2012 Art Show & Market were Becky Webster, National Indian Arts & Crafts Board, and Laura Manthe, Haudenosaunee Raised Beadwork artist. Becky Webster is a raised beadwork artist as well. We thank both for their time and support, and welcome them back as head judges for the 2013 Art Show and Market. The WIASM is a non-profit organization, courtesy of our fiscal sponsor, the Oneida Nation Arts Program.
The Oneida Tribe, the Oneida Nation Arts Program and the Wisconsin Arts Board are generous supporters each year. We could not do this without them. The year 2013 will be the fourth year the Woodland Indian Art Show & Market is held in conjunction with the annual Oneida Powwow at the Norbert Hill Center. We would like to thank the Powwow Committee and the NHC staff for their help, as well as all the volunteers, as we move forward to plan the 2013 Woodland Indian Art Show and Market.
