I also started collecting list of indigenous businesses that one can support.

List of more than 100 Indigenous businesses are located here: https://shopfirstnations.com/locations/

The following list of bussineses are suggested by Dr. Marlyn Bennett

“Here are some lovely and unique Indigenous-owned businesses within Calgary / Alberta:

In light of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on Sept. 30, we wanted to showcase some lovely local Indigenous-owned businesses that play a vital role in helping grow and contribute to Calgary’s economy. With amazing craftsmanship, world-class design, and ingenuity, there is something for everyone at these businesses.

Indigenous Box (https://www.indigenousbox.ca) This unique Alberta brand sends out a subscription box every season containing five to seven unique and beautifully crafted items from Indigenous small businesses across Canada. Their seasonal discovery box is popular and there are many other options, too.

Feral Fawn (https://www.feralfawn.ca) Feral Fawn is a family-run business made up of a husband and wife duo creating Indigenous-style clothing that can be purchased online. Their products have been seen on international exhibits as well as on TV shows such as NBC’s Chicago Fire and Motherland: Fort Salem.

Moonstone Creation (https://moonstonecreation.ca/)This Indigenous-owned art gallery and gift shop is located in the heart of Inglewood. They offer a variety of wearable artwork from bags, pouches, and journals to online classes to learn how to bead, sew moccasins, or make a drum with their online courses. Check back often as they are always creating and selling new artwork year-round.

Transformation Fine Art (https://www.transformationfineart.com) This premier art gallery focuses on Inuit and First Nations art pieces that rival some of the leading galleries across the country. Visit their website to see a collection of sculptures and prints for sale.

Mystical Metis (https://mysticalmetis.ca) Mystical Metis is a beautiful boutique that focuses on beautiful clothing, jewellery, home, kitchen items, and accessories that are 100 per cent designed by Indigenous artists. The products are available on their website or at their new location at the Crossroads Market and a percentage of their sales go to the individual artists whose design was purchased.

Colouring it Forward (https://colouringitforward.com) Colouring It Forward is both a not-for-profit organization and a small business. Their goal is to create more education surrounding Indigenous issues through art, language, and culture with their Equinox Box — a quarterly subscription box filled with Indigenous-made bath products, skincare products, music, art, journals, notebooks, teachings from elders, and more. The new ‘Autumn Equinox Box’ is dedicated to the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

Land of Daughters (https://www.landofdaughters.com) Founded in 2018, this Metis and female-founded homeware brand offers stunning candles, aroma sprays, and solid perfumes that will transform any room into a beautiful and cozy sanctuary — handmade and designed right here in Calgary. Their products can also be found at many different retail stores around Calgary, including The Livery in Inglewood.

Oji Creations Oji Creations (https://oji-creations.square.site) was created by Saulteaux/Metis archaeologist Autumn Whiteway. The paintings and photographs for sale explore contemporary Indigenous themes while also highlighting issues within the Indigenous community. Visit their website to shop Indigenous jewellery , dreamcatchers, stationery, canvas prints, and more.”
