Our Story


Native Northwest’s story began 35 years ago with a social worker, a rack of postcards in a basement, and the vision of celebrating First Nations and Native American arts with the world

We are inspired by the living cultures of the Pacific Northwest. Our company office is honoured to be situated on the majestic Fraser River within Musqueam (Coast Salish) territory, in beautiful Vancouver, B.C.

The values behind our brand originate with the founding reason for the company: Native arts and cultures, designed by Indigenous artists, propelled by commerce for a social purpose.

Each of our exchanges, from the sourcing and compensation of Indigenous artists, to our staff and merchants, are part of a lifelong relationship between Indigenous cultures and the communities we pledge to honour and respect.

Our evolution to a social and business enterprise is ongoing. We thank you for joining us in the journey that lies ahead
