This is because Native American Arts is a program area at NEFA. Fueled by a commitment to increase the visibility, self-determination, and sustainability of Native artists and art forms, NEFA supports Native artists and organizations through grants, technical assistance, and network development. CreativeGround is the new Native Arts directory, which in its previous form was used by various organizations throughout New England such as the Boston Children's Museum, the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, and Springstep to find Native American artists in order to feature their work in performances, workshops, and gallery showings.
