The exceptional variety and originality of our art
distinguishes our gallery from others. Nearly all
art is from the U.S.; a tiny percentage
is created by Canadian Iroquois. It is Indigenous
handmade, authentic, and high quality. The artists

Affiliated Tribes, and many others.
We also represent Navajo, Santo Domingo, and

Stop in, and experience a time inconceivable by
today's standards: 125 years ago the telephone had

railroad and telegraph, when everything was

visit us and see truly remarkable art.
Promoting Timeless Art - We work hard to
purchase and promote only the highest-quality
Indigenous art from Native American artists we know. Ultimately
only you can enable our artists to continue the
traditions of their ancestors, through purchase of
their art. We and they truly appreciate your
patronage and 18 years of continuous support of
their artistic creations.
This is where thousands of you have come to purchase
Indigenous handmade art in a beautiful gallery, with
the assistance of knowledgeable staff.
You have come for nearly two decades from all 50
states and over 80 countries. Thank you.

Prairie Star Gallery is a member of the 3/50 Project
, a grass-roots effort with a mission to save the
brick-and-mortar stores our nation's consumers
depend on. The concept is to encourage as many folks
as possible to invest $50 a month in any combination
of 1, 2, or 3 store-front stores in their hometown
or in the town they happen to be visiting.
Why is this important? Because unlike some large
businesses, most local stores don't receive
subsidies from any governmental body - be it local,
state, or federal. It's only through your purchase
of our goods that we recycle those $$ to pay our
staff modest salaries, pay the landlord, the web
host, the utility companies, the airport case, the
... well, you understand. We run our store the same
way proprietors ran the general stores, barber
shops, and millinery stores here in Sioux Falls and
across this great nation 100 years ago. Without
customers like yourself, they and we cannot survive.
