Silver & Turquoise Ball

The annual Silver & Turquoise Ball brings support for our important work. The Phoenix Indian Center will host its annual Silver & Turquoise Ball virtually this year!

Due to the current pandemic, the popular gathering, which features American Indian art auctions, entertainment, and cuisine, has pivoted to an online platform this year. The event’s theme is Celebrating the Art of Native American Fashion and will feature American Indian fashion designers Waterlily by Patricia Michaels and ACONAV by Loren Aragon. The event will also pay tribute to Lloyd Kiva New, a pioneer of modern Native American fashion design, with an exclusive show by collector Robert Black of Fashion by Robert Black.

We encourage our guests to celebrate virtually with us by posting photos of yourself in your Native American fashion, traditional or contemporary, and wearing your silver and turquoise, or other favorite jewelry! 

Be sure to use the hashtag #VirtualSnTBall20 so that we can share your posts during our live event!


For over 70 years, the Phoenix Indian Center has assisted women, men, and children who live in the Phoenix area. A variety of services including job preparedness to help people get back into the workforce, substance abuse and suicide prevention, language and cultural revitalization efforts, and college/career readiness for youth. These build new skills, offering hope, support, and opportunities ultimately strengthening and sustaining families.
