ZuniLink.com is a Web site that has been in operation since 2002. It is owned by the owners of Aboriginals: Art of the First Person, a gallery previously located on Sanibel Island, Florida. In 2005, following two destructive hurricanes, the gallery was closed and the operation moved exclusively to an online operation.
The owners have been in the Tribal Arts business, offering both historic and contemporary Indian, African, Inuit and Australian Aboriginal art since 1979 and are members of major Tribal Arts organizations, including the Indian Arts and Crafts Association (IACA) and the Southwest Association for Indian Art (SWAIA).
IACA requires members to offer only Indian Art that has been made by enrolled Native Americans. SWAIA stages the annual Santa Fe Indian Market.
