Bonhams holds dedicated sales of Native American Art every June and December in San Francisco, attracting the world's major collectors and dealers with an interest in the art of North America's indigenous peoples. Director Ingmars Lindbergs has been with the department for 16 years, overseeing all aspects of operations and collaborating with his predecessor, Jim Haas, to firmly establish Bonhams as the premier venue for quality Native American Indian art and artefacts. During that time the department has seen the sale of over $55 million worth of such property, and in the process established numerous world record auction prices in many collecting categories.
