BREAKING: Bruce Bernstein, out of SWAIA

Hot off the heels of the 91st annual Indian Market, the Southwestern Association of Indian Arts announces via email that they've "decided not to renew SWAIA's three year term contract with Dr. Bruce Bernstein."

The message, sent by Stephine Poston on behalf of the Board, goes on to say that the decision was made today at a special meeting.

"SWAIA is contemplating a different direction for our business model," Poston writes.

"We believe that this new direction requires new leadership to move toward our 95th year and beyond, serving the needs of our Native Artists and  constituents, sponsors, partners, and the larger community that supports SWAIA so generously."

This is Bernstein speaking at SWAIA's annual meeting last year:
