would be able to participate in the Santa Fe Indian Market, the largest 
event in the Southwest, and felt this would be an excellent opportunity 
to utilize the questionnaire. In order to do this, it requested 
emergency approval of the Indian Artist/Artisan Survey; OMB approved 
the survey under OMB Control Number 1085-0003. The IACB is planning to
