#ShopIndigenous: Canada

There’s a fine line between cultural appreciation, and cultural appropriation.

In the spirit of appreciation for Indigenous creations, and support for Indigenous artists, here’s a list of places you can shop – and know that you’re looking at authentic Indigenous work.

I’m open to additions or corrections (hit me up in the comments!) I have made my best effort to gather only those shops/artists who clearly and transparently identify as Indigenous.

This list is an updated version of my earlier post, broken into categories. It also captures shops in Canada. I’ll list shops in the US and internationally in a later post.
