Seven Arrows Art Gallery’s founder, Cheryl West, takes great pride in her extensive connection to the Native American Indian worlds, and of knowledge of its culture and artwork. She has a personal relationship with Native American Indian families of many tribes, from whom she receives quality goods. This relationship with “her families,” as she calls them, ensures the authenticity of the goods in her shop, and shows her trustworthy ethics toward her clientele.
Cheryl values here Native American Indian connections so much that she supports their causes in many ways.
The gallery supports the Adopt-a-Native-Elder Program, which is a charitable bridge of hope that provides food, clothing and necessities to traditional elders who live in the spiritual and cultural traditions of their Navajo ancestors. Cheryl travels occasionally to Arizona to help in the semi-annual food run, as well. She is also a charter member of the National Museum of the American Indian, and a member of the Indian Arts and Crafts Association.
