ABOUT US Native Northwest builds everyday connections to Indigenous cultures. 100% of the art featured on Native Northwest products is designed by Indigenous artists. Native Northwest's story began over 35 years ago with a social worker, a rack of postcards, and the vision of building everyday connection to Indigenous cultures. The values behind our brand originate with the founding reason for the company: Native arts and cultures, designed by Indigenous artists, built on a foundation of respect and authenticity. We tie authentic designs to bold, new concepts where artists can tell the stories of their communities and cultures through their distinct designs. Native Northwest products are guided by the following principles: 1. 100% of the art featured on Native Northwest products is designed by Indigenous artists 2. All artists have provided consent and contractual permission for their art to be featured on Native Northwest products 3. Artist names are acknowledged on all product packaging 4. Cultural traditions are honoured by acknowledging cultural affiliation on product packaging 5. Artists are paid in fees and royalties 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. Connect with us on Instagram and Facebook to follow our story. Native Northwest operates on Musqueam, Coast Salish territory in Vancouver, British Columbia. 2 Visit to learn more about our artists and watch artist videos Here are a few of the Musqueam and Coast Salish artists Native Northwest has worked with (from left to right, top to bottom): Leila Stogan, Musqueam, Coast Salish • Francis Horne Sr., Coast Salish Simone Diamond, Coast Salish • Maynard Johnny Jr., Coast Salish, Kwakwaka'wakw
