Grand Canyon National Park, South Rim
Our nation’s most creative resources have been outsourced:
When National Park Service concessions are selling mostly “Made in China” souvenirs,
authentic American and Native American artist/designers are the losers.
In fact, the tribal organizations and the Main Street communities all across America
are the losers, too. They’re being deprived of the economic investment that American artists
could be recycling in their communities … in our communities.
So before you make a purchase, SHOP SLOW:
Take a look at the tag. Ask where the product was made.
Ask for authentic Native American arts and crafts. Skip the imported look-alikes.
Ask for “Made in America” gifts and souvenirs by local and domestic producers.
Urge the National Park concessioners to buy more Made in America gifts and souvenirs and more authentic Native American products.
