The Southeastern Indian Artists Association is devoted to promoting the arts and artists of tribal peoples. While the name of the group is specifically tied to the Southeastern tribes of Cherokees, Creeks, Choctaws, Chickasaws, and Seminoles, the association seeks to include artists of all tribal affiliations. Formerly known as the Cherokee Artists Association, the newly reorganized Southeastern Indian Artists Association seeks to empower and encourage artists and craftspeople in the development of their artistic careers through meetings, workshops, and exhibition opportunities.
