The idea of Wintercount is to expose Indians and non-Indians to the many diverse cultures of the American Indian Nations. With the help of the artists included in these pages we are able to offer Native American Art that ranges from traditional to contemporary. You will find totem animals from the Northwest Coast, maidens of the Southwest Pueblos, People of the Plains, Navajo landscapes and families, historical leaders and Native American animal spirit helpers. We have reproduced the original paintings as Greeting Cards, Limited Edition Prints & Matted Prints.
The inside of each
card contains a quote, song or prayer of American Indian origin.
The Indian Inspirational
prints continue the tradition of Wintercount with artwork
Wintercount is very

The name Wintercount derives from the recorded history of the Plains Indians. Many Plains Tribes
depicted special events on a buffalo hide or "Story Skin". The Lakota
people referred to their hide paintings as "Winter Counts". Each winter
the tribal historian would reflect on the previous year and record what
he felt was the most important event. The picture above records the artists
that are the history of Wintercount.
North American Indian Tribes adhere to the philosophy that each generation
is the caretaker for the future generations. We must think and plan carefully
when using our natural resources to insure their well being. We at Wintercount
believe in that philosophy and hope our generations will happily, yet
seriously, accept our responsibility. Our grandchildren's children will
