American Indian art, ritual and culture have long held fascination for non-Native Americans. City Weekly asked Aurelia Watchman, who works at TP Gallery at 252 S. Main, why this was so:


I think white Americans are drawn to Indian culture because it is down-to-earth. We live in a very hectic, confused world and people want something that will give them wholeness again. The world we have created is not whole; it is broken. Everything in Indian culture has spiritual elements that give meaning to your life. It is a meaning that is connected to and part of the world around you. In fact, it draws from that world.
