Goosenecks State Park Tourist Trap Tips by frank_delargy
Goosenecks State Park Tourist Traps: 1 reviews and 1 photos
A very small amount of the jewelry that the Navaho & Ute Indians 'booths' located at the tourists spots sell is actually made by them. Sometimes you will even see the "made in china" labels in some of the things they have for sale.
If it is machine-stamped, it is almost 100% made overseas.
Unique Suggestions: Now, If you don't mind buying something made in China and feel like you want to support them anyway.. that's fine, but don't assume that because they sell it that they make it.. After all, it takes a lot longer to make it than sell it and how many Navajo do you see making it by the side of the road?
Fun Alternatives: There are some places where you can buy genuine Navajo jewelry.. but.. it will cost more than the '3 for $10' variety.
Here is a webpage that discusses the ins & outs of Indian Jewelry.
