Send a Native Valentine to Your Sweetie!

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown January 29th, 2015 Last Updated on: January 29th, 2015


These are so cute I just had to share with you guys! The artist is Melissa L. Sanchez is from the Pueblos of Acoma and Laguna in New Mexico. And like most of us Natives, she could never find any greeting cards that really spoke to her style. So she decided to make her own!

One year i just couldn't find any cards that I liked, so I said to myself, self … get your pen and paper out. The original line was black and white only and then I learned a few tricks for coloring on the ol' graphics program. From there a few people asked to purchase, and they have snowballed from there.

These are just a few examples of her Valentine's cards for 2015. There are more styles available!
