Northwest Tribal Art

Northwest Tribal Art (Northwest American Native Arts) is one of the oldest galleries in Seattle showcasing museum-quality Northwest Native and Inuit artwork for collectors since 1981. For decades, Northwest Tribal Art has earned a reputation for bringing fine native artworks from emerging and renowned artists who bring the cultures and legends to life.

We used to be located in historic Pike Market Place in Seattle, surrounded by Seattle Art Museum (SAM), Original Starbuck Coffee, Four Seasons, A Five Stars hotel and many attractions within minutes walking distance. After 41 years in Seattle, we are now an online gallery only.

When someone visits our gallery, they have the opportunity to visualize distinctive part of Northwest native culture with varied collection of First Nations, native style, arts and crafts. At any given time, Northwest Tribal Art features over few hundred native artists and represents many Tribes and Nation of the Northwest Coast.

Our staffs can assist you with choosing corporate or incentive gifts, awards, presentation or delegate packages from a diverse and authentic collection of Native art to suit anyone’s budget.
