Today we honor Indigenous Peoples Day. It is an important day to honor and celebrate Native American history, culture and contributions to our everyday life.
Of course, standing with the Indigenous community should happen more than just once a year. In addition to actively seeking out their voices, you can support Native and Indigenous people by shopping their brands all year round. Below are six Indigenous-owned Etsy shops to bookmark. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or for friends and family, their beautiful creations need to be on your radar.
P.S. If you’re looking for even more Indigenous Etsy shops to support, check out Etsy’s new Indigenous Artisans Collective. The retailer partnered Nest to facilitate the launches of over a dozen individual Etsy shops for Indigenous makers across the US and Canada, all of which sell products that are “rooted in the history, traditions, and resilience of their ancestors.” The initiative is part of as part Etsy’s Uplift Makers Program.
