November is Native American Heritage Month, a time to recognize and celebrate the cultures and histories of Indigenous peoples across North America. While the month celebrates Native communities, it's also a time for raising awareness about the systemic issues Indigenous communities continue to face.

"I think COVID definitely disproportionately impacted vulnerable groups, and now is a perfect time to be kind of raising awareness of those inequities and look for creative ways to be learning more about the people that we share the land with, but also to be supporting them whether that's through their businesses or through their other ventures," said Nicole McLaren, the owner and founder of Raven Reads, a book subscription box that shares the voices and work of Indigenous authors while reinvesting money into other Indigenous-owned businesses. 

November is a great time to buy from Indigenous businesses, but by supporting these retailers year round, "you're going to be providing not only revenue for that business, but you're building stronger communities," McLaren said.

We put together a list of Native-owned businesses to consider when you're shopping for gifts or yourself. From jewelry to wine, there are lots of businesses to support with your dollars, especially during holidays.
