Federal commissioners and Congress members are seeking to update the Indian Arts and Crafts Act (IACA), a law that aims to protect the work of Native artists and artisans by establishing standards for craft authenticity and by imposing criminal penalties for counterfeit Native American goods, a persistent and growing issue for Native artists whose livelihoods depend on their practices.
