At last: Individual Attribution for Native American Artists.

In most museums, art by Native American Artists has been displayed with tags indicating only the tribe that the artist was from, not the name (when known) of the artist. The Denver Art Museum is changing this practice by now attributing the work to the individuals who made it. Labels matter.

The curator of the pieces, Nancy Blomberg said: "I want to signal that there are artists on the floor".

So far, she has been able to trace 1/6th of the artists to the works in the collection.
