About Us

For more than 40 years, Don Siegel has been collecting, studying, researching, and enjoying historic Native American art with a special emphasis on Historic and Vintage  Southwest Jewelry, Plains bead work, and Pueblo pottery.  He is active within the Apsaalooke (Crow) community and works closely with emerging native artists, institutional curators and museums alike.  

He created Chipeta Trading Company in 2005 to share his passion for historic Native American art, and to this day is still sharing his knowledge and materials to clients worldwide. Don can assist you in building a new collection, expanding your existing collection, or helping you amass a world-class, museum-quality collection of historic Native American art.

Thanks to the on-going support of new and existing clients, a significant portion of the annual profits of Chipeta Trading are used to help fund Indigenous/Native non profits, educational scholarships programs, social justice initiatives, museum programming and affordable health care for children and families in need. For more information please contact Don.

Discretion is of utmost importance. Chipeta works quietly,discreetly, and by appointment only, enabling Don’s clients to collect one-of-a-kind historic Native American art while providing them with a relaxed environment outside of the public eye.

Chipeta’s gallery space, by appointment only, is located in Santa Fe, New Mexico just 1 block from the historic downtown Plaza, where Don surrounds himself with love for the Native American cultures. With a constant inflow of new items, clients will be enthralled with each and every visit. Don is always looking to acquire single pieces as well as entire collections of historic Native American art.  We have an extensive collection that cannot be shown entirely on our web site.  Please contact us with your "wish list"  of items that you may add to your collection.  If we do not currently have the piece available we are able to successfully source items with relationships nationwide.

If you are interested in learning more about Chipeta's funding programs and to make an appointment to visit the gallery please feel free to contact Don directly:
