Native American Artifacts

Our carefully crafted artifacts are modern day replicas of historical artifacts used by the Native Americans.  Take a look at the Medicine Wheel to the right. It represents the circle of life.  The center cross bar symbolizes the four winds, four seasons, four directions and four teachers.  It is considered to be good luck by the Native Americans.  Many Natives display it in their homes for protection. When you purchase one of our artifacts, you will receive a Certificate of Authenticity including the name of the Native American responsible for crafting it.

One of our Featured Artists-Curtis Bitsui
Curtis Bitsui is a great example of a modern Native American Navajo who is preserving his heritage while working in the 21st century world.  The Navajo Nation, where Bitsui and many skilled artisans originate, extends into the states of Utah, Arizona and New Mexico. 

Curtis ha
s been making artifacts for over 15 years.  His bows, quivers, and arrows are all made by hand using buckskin with hand stitching and braiding, representing traditional handcrafted Indian artifacts.  Many of his bow and quiver sets also have genuine red fox or coyote fur, real glass beads, and prayer feathers.  Curtis' business has grown from a one-man shop to employing many Native Americans from the Reservation.  As a leader among his people, he offers hand crafted Indian crafts that have become sought after around the world.

Our company is notorious for carrying unique, one of a kind items.  For years we have sold the coiled rattlesnake beer mug featured at the right, but it wasn't until just recently that they became extremely popular!  An actress bought this mug-the same one we have been selling for years-for night time talk show host Craig Ferguson.  Since that episode aired, we have been selling these mugs at an unbelievable rate! 

Our mugs are different from others in the sense that our coiled rattlesnake mugs are hand painted...created by artist Jack Graham.  Upon the purchase of one of these coiled rattlesnake mugs, you will find Graham's name signed on the bottom!  Why not go to and purchase one of these unique, nationally televised coiled rattlesnake mugs for Christmas!  It is sure to be the hit in any home or office!

The Legend of Black Hills Gold

Most people don't know the story of how Black Hills Gold came to be.  Well, as the legend goes, a young Frenchman came to the Black Hills in South Dakota, seeking a fortune in gold.  His search for gold was more difficult than expected...discouraged, tired, and homesick, he fell in to a deep sleep.  That night, he dreamed of the beautiful vineyards in his homeland.
Awakening feeling refreshed, this Frenchman decided he would purchase gold from other prospectors, and harden the metal into green, rose, and yellow karat gold.  Inspired by his dream, he made grape leaves and clusters of 3 colors...creating Black Hills Gold!

This authentic Black Hills Gold Jewelry by South Dakota Gold is made in the USA.  The pure 10 karat gold is alloyed to create the soft colors of pink and green that you see on these jewelry pieces.  Each piece is warranted against defects in workmanship and manufacturing for the life of the product.
