These pieces are more than art; they are the heart and soul of Native American belief. The craftsmanship that goes into them is nothing short of spectacular.

Earlier this year, the Denver Art Museum hosted “Why We Dance: American Indian Art in Motion,” a multi-sensory exhibit of videos, paintings, and powwow dancing. The collection of art combined the ingenuity of multiple Native American artists and featured an array of multimedia art that had more to offer once paired with ceremonial dancing.

Across every tribe in the United States, Native Americans have used dancing ceremonies to express their beliefs and convey prayer to the higher powers of nature.

The unique and eclectic display featured masks that shifted expression as easily as a person changes their face, sand paintings that serve a single purpose then are immediately destroyed, and many other stunning pieces that come alive with movement.

SilverTribe.com, a company that works with Native American artists to bring their work to the public, saw this display and the stunning interactivity of its art. The company saw how people were completely immersed in the art and wanted to contribute to this cultural sharing experience.

SilverTribe’s spokesman, Chris Anderson, commented “I think what makes ‘Why We Dance’ so unique is that it gives people the chance to share in the deep beauty of Native culture. These pieces are more than art; they are the heart and soul of Native American belief. The craftsmanship that goes into them is nothing short of spectacular.”

The team at SilverTribe.com were so blown away by the commitment of the display that they decided to deliver their own art in motion collection. After meeting with their artists, Anderson and his team have gathered a selection of Native American jewelry that moves with the ebb and flow of life and nature.

Among the new pieces, guests can find gorgeous liquid silver necklaces that flow with every step, dangle earrings, and stunning fashionable bolo ties that sway with a cowboy-like swagger.

Anderson concluded by saying, “These pieces remind us of the connectivity of Native American belief and nature. These works hold the essence of our passage through time and how simple changes can become beautiful forms of art.”
