Authentic figurines, which are essentially sculptures crafted by Indians, have so much history behind the artistry.

Today, Indians who live on the reservation continue to craft handmade figurines. Individuals who tour reservations have the opportunity to purchase authentic figurines. Native American figurines are commonly used for decorative purposes. Even if you are unable to tour an Indian reservation, figurines are available from many Native American stores. These retail shops, which are typically owned and operated by Native Americans, include an assortment of items such as jewelry, art, figurines, musical instruments, and so forth.

In fact, Indian Americans can obtain tribal specific figurines. For example, there are figurines of Indian chief leaders, ancient warriors, etc.
