Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and with Thanksgiving swiftly comes Black Friday. It is so important to support our Native Small Businesses, and that is why we would like to share a list of some of our favorite Native owned shops and their Black Friday deals.
Aaron Silva and Sam Rosebear, owners of TheNTVS clothing are participating in a Black Friday weekend only sale of their very limited shirt designs! These include designs by Steven Paul Judd as well as their limited edition shirts from the past.
TheNTVS is offering powwows.com readers an exclusive discount with promo code “powwows” at checkout.
Please also check out their line of shirts designed to bring awareness to the water protectors at the Dakota Access Pipeline. These shirts include their designs titled “Defend the Sacred”, “Stop the D.A.P.L” a shirt inspired by the “Join of Die” flag by Benjamin Franklin, but with an indigenous twist, and their “I Stand with Standing Rock” shirt. A design that is bold, and allows the wearer to show both their solidarity with those protecting as well as giving a way to start conversation. All proceeds from these shirt sales go towards “Indigenous Rising”, an environmental network run by Director Tom Goldtooth. Dallas Goldtooth is currently on the front lines of the D.A.P.L representing the Indigenous Rising network, and the money from purchasing these shirts is used to directly assist those at Standing Rock. Please see the links below to view the Indigenous Rising website.
This is a shop I have been following for a while now, and designer Lloree Dawn Dickens also known as “stanNaaaNakatais” or Yellow Buffalo Woman in Arikara, named for her Great-great Grandmother, is incredibly talented when it comes to beading her mocs. She is a proud member of the Three Affiliated Tribes – Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara (www.MHANation.com), originally from the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation located in the Plains region of North Dakota. Here’s what Designer Lloree has to say about her business..
“I started LL Designs about 7 years ago where I was only focusing on custom pieces for family and friends upon request for regalia and powwow purposes. What started off as an extremely passionate hobby, later turned into an official company in early 2015. I built my company from the ground up and officially launched it as a legitimate business in April 2015. I created LL Designs because I wanted to provide a representation of creativity and authenticity of Native Americans. Honestly, I was tired of seeing larger, corporate companies selling moccasins and footwear; only to realize that most of these companies were promoting products as “knock-offs”, outsourcing and having their products made by non-natives and “made in China” and other countries…My goal and vision for LL Designs is to offer a product that not only educates, but truly represents an authentic moccasin experience. I hand-craft over 350 moccasins a year and absolutely love it! I literally talk mocs, walk mocs, and dream mocs. 🙂 LL Designs is expanding and growing at fairly rapid rate for being such a young company.”
