edit History of Native American Pottery
Native American pottery and basket making were some of the earliest craft activities of tribal cultures. From Africa to Papua New Guinea, pots were created to use for storage, cooking and to carry seeds and foods. In Native America, tribes were more nomadic so they tended to use baskets as their primary carriers and storage vessels while the more permanently settled Pueblo societies made pots for most of their needs. In time, Pueblo Indians began to add designs to their pottery creations.
The earliest designs were thumbprints and corrugations. Later, they used colored clay slips for painting designs of creatures and geometric symbols on their pottery. The belief is that the designs were used both to honor mythological figures and game, and to satisfy the human need for beautiful objects.
On the Native-PotteryLink website you will find hundreds of pottery items from various tribes of Native Americans, including Acoma Pottery, Acoma Isleta Pottery, Choctaw, Kickapoo & Sioux Pottery, Hopi Pottery, Jemez Pottery, Navajo Pottery, Laguna Pottery, San Ildefonso Pottery, Santa Clara Pottery, Taos, San Juan Santo Domingo Pottery, Zuni Pottery, Pottery Nativity Sets, Village of Mata Ortiz Pottery and Pottery Storytellers.
There are many different styles of bowls, pots, basket type pots, canteens, vases, plates, masks, figurines, jars and more to choose from.
edit Guaranteed Authenticity
At Native-PotteryLink they work directly with artists or through intermediaries that they trust. They make statements about each item based on the input from these individuals and their experience, so you can be sure that you are purchasing an authentic Native American piece that will be exactly what they describe it to be.
In 30 years only one person has ever returned a piece of art for refund.
If within 30 days of purchase you obtain an appraisal from any other established authority that identifies the item as other than what they represented it to be, they will refund your purchase price upon receipt of the returned item in the same condition as when it was purchased. Their guarantee states, "It is what we tell you it is or we take it back".
Native-PotteryLink is a member of several authenticating organizations. Over the years they have cultivated a reputation for expertise and authority on the subject. They also happily field phone calls from people who aren’t even their buyers and are just people with questions about Native American art.
In addition, you have a 14-day inspection return privilege on all items so that if your purchased item, after seeing it in person, doesn’t look like what you thought it would, you have the opportunity to return it in its original condition for a full refund of the purchase price with no questions asked.

William Ernest Waites and his wife Susanne were living in Australia when they became enamored with the native art there. They then traveled to Africa where they were further fascinated with the native art. In 1979 they visited the American Southwest where they fell in love with the Native American art.
When the Waites’ went to the Southwest for the first time they did a Flagstaff swap in Flagstaff, Arizona. They toured the Native American areas and William, whose professional background was in advertising and creative writing, felt an awakening. They stopped at Second Mesa (the Hopi cultural center) where they found a stack of paintings and other art in a back room. They didn’t buy anything at the time but halfway back to the house, William insisted that they turn back so he could buy a particular painting that was haunting him. Since then, they have been buying and selling Native American art. They have since become experts in the field.
After Hurricane Charlie damaged their gallery building on Sanibel Island, Florida, Native-PotteryLink decided to sell exclusively online. They have customers all over the US and as far away as Australia, Germany, England and the Netherlands. Over 80% of their business is from repeat customers. The most popular items sold are vases, pots, containers and nativity scenes, while the storyteller figurines are the best sellers. Sometimes they also rent pottery pieces as movie props or for photo shoots.

Search Engine Friendliness
A few simple technical fixes can make any site show up better in
The title of a web page appears in search results as the link to that page. Learn more ...
The title of a web page appears as a clickable link in search results and bookmarks. A descriptive, compelling home page title with relevant keywords can increase the number of people visiting the site.
Search engines view the text of the title tag as a strong indication of what the page is about. Accurate keywords in the title tag can help the page rank better in search results.
A title tag should have fewer than 70 characters, including spaces. Major search engines won't display more than that.
The title tag of your home page (and any other page on your site) should not contain the site’s domain name or URL. These will appear near the title in search results, so use your 70 characters to tell people what the page is about. The title tag should not contain any HTML, because it will be displayed incorrectly or not at all.
- Good: This web page has a title tag.
- Warning: The title tag for this page is too long. It should be 70 characters or less, including spaces.
- The title of this site's home page:
- “Native American Pueblo Pottery, Storytellers, Nativity sets - Investment Grade”
The H1 heading is an important sentence or phrase on a web page that quickly and clearly tells people and search engines what they can expect to find there. Learn more ...
Just one H1
In most cases, a web page should have just one H1 heading. Using multiple H1 headings is okay if that is a logical way to organize the page, but they should be used sparingly. That’s because search engines can view multiple H1 headings as an attempt to signal that all the content on a page is equally important, a tactic that’s seen as an attempt to game the search engine algorithms.
Search engines look for an H1 heading to determine what a page is about. Human visitors do, too.
Content and placement
The H1 heading appears on the web page itself, unlike the page title, which people will see mostly in search results.
The H1 tag (which contains the H1 heading) is usually listed first among the other heading tags for a page. None of the major search engines, however, will penalize a site for listing H2 through H6 tags ahead of the H1 tag.
- Problem: This web page does not have an H1 heading. It should have one.

Your website's robots.txt file can tell search engines to ignore parts of your site. Learn more ...
Website owners usually use robots.txt to let search engines know which pages or sections of their site shouldn't be indexed for example, web contact forms, print versions of web pages and other content that's duplicated elsewhere on the site. Robots.txt can also be used to request that specific robots not index a site. For more information, read How To Use Robots.txt.
Search engine robots
You'll need to know the names of specific search engine robots - or "bots" – if you’re going to exclude any or all of them from any part of your site.
- Google’s bot is called Googlebot. Google is the world’s largest search engine, and is where many people discover new websites.
- Bing’s bot is called msnbot. Bing also provides search results to people using Yahoo to search the Web. Together, Bing and Yahoo are the second largest search resource, after Google.
- Baidu’s bot is called Baiduspider. Baidu is a major search engine in China, and the number of people using it is increasing rapidly.
- AboutUs.org’s bot is called AboutUsBot. To create a Site Report, AboutUs uses crawling technology that’s similar to what search engines use.
- Good: This website’s robots.txt file is not blocking major search engines from crawling its pages. Your website can appear in any engine’s search results.
This website can live at www.Native-PotteryLink.com or Native-PotteryLink.com. It's best for your site's visibility to live at just one URL, or web address. You'll want to create a 301 redirect to the URL you choose from the other URL. Learn more ...
Choose one or the other
If the same web page exists at two different URLs, people can choose to link to one or the other. Links from other sites to your website are valuable — they tell search engines that your site is important to people. By splitting valuable links between two identical pages, you're diluting the power of those links to help a page rank higher in search results.
