Does Art Identification Regulation Violate Free Speech?

Oklahoma photographer, Peggy Fontenot, is challenging a state law, saying it:  “violates her constitutional rights to free speech and to earn a living by prohibition her from truthfully describing her work as ‘American Indian-made.’”

The state has the American Indian Arts and Crafts Sales Act, which prohibits who can label their work “American Indian-made.” Fontenot’s tribe, the Patawomeck, is not recognized by the state of Oklahoma or the federal government.
