Help raise awareness of quality Indigenous brands and help spread the word to help grow their business.
Every season we ship a box, we are highlighting the names and products of Indigenous-owned businesses helping them gain brand awareness. Through the sharing of photos of your boxes and word-of-mouth, these businesses see even greater growth!
Find local and authentic Indigenous products and giftware to support.
We aim to provide QUALITY and not quantity. For each box, we carefully research products from hundreds of Indigenous-owned businesses across Canada and the US to bring you new and quality products that highlight the diversity of Indigenous commerce.
