SANTA FE, N.M. — This weekend where Native arts are all in Santa Fe got started with the Indigenous Fine Arts Market in the Railyard. Somehow, the presence of the Green Coyote was even more appropriate amid the booths, since the Trickster has an honored role in many tribal tales.

Don’t forget, even if you’re not on the lookout for something to buy, there’s plenty of entertainment offered in conjunction both with this event and the Santa Fe Indian Market coming to the Plaza on Saturday and Sunday.

If you were strolling through the Railyard Thursday afternoon, you might have caught some colorful dancing by Larry Yazzie and his charming daughter, Samarra Morningstar Yazzie (Meskwaki/Lakota) who showed visitors what a Midwestern women’s scrub dance looks like.
