Though his company, Chipeta Trading Co. was founded in 2005, Don Segal has been collecting, studying, and dealing in historic Native American art for over 40 years. In addition to working with us, Don also works with some of the finest galleries and museums directly when they need museum-quality Native art. Don himself is active in the American Apsaalooke (Crow) community, and Chipeta Trading Co. is a member of the Antique Tribal Art Dealers Association (ATADA).

The Zuni people of the American Southwest have been inhabiting the area now known as New Mexico for approximately 4,000 years. In the late 19th century, Zuni artists began to create the silver and turquoise jewelry pieces that their tribe is known far. Vintage aficionados may already be aware of the iconic "Zuni toon" inlay jewelry, and the carved stone animal fetishes that appear in much native Zuni art.

A silver pin with inlaid Turquoise, coral, mother of pearl, and jet. This pin depicts the Zuni god and folk hero Knifewing, a warrior god. Knifewing is a popular and recurring character in Zuni jewelry, especially through the early half of the 20th century.
