48th Annual Red Cloud Indian Art Show


Stop on in for the 48th Annual Red Cloud Indian Art Show. The festivities kick off this year on Sunday, June 5. The annual show is the largest and longest running Native American art show of its kind in the country, and one of only a few held on an Indigenous reservation hundreds of miles from any urban area.

Since 1969, the Red Cloud Indian Art Show has attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors to The Heritage Center and the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to view impressive works of art from seasoned Native American professionals and young Lakota artists just beginning their artistic careers. The annual show runs for ten weeks this summer.

Each year the exhibition showcases more than 150 submissions in categories from painting and photography to beadwork and quillwork. This year the number of artwork submitted is 201 pieces! The juried competition will feature the work of more than 80 Native artists, awarding over $7000 in prizes in 24 different categories.

The show is free and open to the public seven days a week, with free daily tours offered of not just The Heritage Center, but also Red Cloud Indian School’s historic grounds.
