#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.

  1. Hi Jess. I just shared your poem; Ossuaries, on my Natural Burial in BC Facebook page. (https://www.facebook.com/GreenBurialBC/) Your poetry is so beautiful. I also wanted to give you a heads up about Lisa Shepherd https://www.facebook.com/MetisArtisan/ for your shop indigenous list. Thanks so much. Nicola

  2. Thank you so much for the feature!

  3. Wow, thank you so much for mentioning my little shop! I really appreciate it. I’d love to send you some tea as a thank you :). Is there a way to do that?? If not, I’ll say a thank you to the river in appreciation. But please know it made my day! Take care,
