Zuni fetishes are carvings made from various materials by the Zuni people.  Traditionally, fetishes served a ceremonial purpose for their creators and they represented animals and figures that were part of their culture.  Today, as a form of Native American Art, they are sold to collectors worldwide.  With a myriad of materials like turquoise, shell, jet, marble, serpentine, and much more, Zuni fetish carvers are able to create carvings in a style of their own.

Zuni Pueblo is the largest pueblo in New Mexico, and because of its location, Zuni is the most traditional.  Continuing to make jewelry, fetishes, and pottery, most of the people of Zuni are artists.  Zuni jewelry makers are known for lapidary skills including inlay, needlepoint, and petit point work.
