Eligibility Requirements

The Heard Museum and Heard Museum Guild comply with the requirements of the Indian Arts & Crafts Act of 1990 (P.L. 101-644) which makes it illegal to market an art or craft item in a manner that falsely suggests it is Indian-produced. Under the Act, an Indian is defined as a member of any federally or officially State recognized Indian Tribe, or an individual certified as an Indian by an Indian Tribe. For information:  www.doi.gov/iacb/act

First-time applicants must include a proof of tribal enrollment with their application. If you have submitted this information with a previous year’s application, you do not need to submit another copy.
