Thank you for your interest in participating in the Annual Seafair Indian Days Pow Wow. Reproductions or machine made products are discouraged – exceptions are clothing and blankets. This is, historically, culturally and traditionally, a Native American event and your cooperation is appreciated.
UIATF is in full support of the Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990; The Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 (P.L. 101-644) is a truth-in-advertising law that prohibits misrepresentation in marketing of Indian arts and crafts products within the United States. It is illegal to offer or display for sale, or sell any art or craft product in a manner that falsely suggests it is Indian produced, an Indian product, or the product of a particular Indian or Indian Tribe or Indian arts and crafts organization, resident within the United States. For a first time violation of the Act, an individual can face civil or criminal penalties up to a $250,000 fine or a 5-year prison term, or both. If a business violates the Act, it can face civil penalties or can be prosecuted and fined up to $1,000,000. https://www.doi.gov/iacb/act.
