In honor of Native American Heritage Month, we’re bringing you the best of Native-owned businesses and those who carry Native-created works around Pike Place Market. We encourage you to shop mindfully when purchasing Native art to ensure its authenticity and direct support for the creators.
Read on to see where you can find unique art, jewelry, and other handmade crafts by Indigenous makers at Pike Place Market and beyond!
Started as a custom shoe wear business, founder Louie Gong (Nooksack) of Eighth Generation now showcases work from more than a dozen Indigenous artists. Located in the heart of the Economy Market’s atrium, you can find everything from prints, elegantly crafted earrings, to vibrantly printed textiles such as socks, scarves, and blankets.
This arts and lifestyle brand owned by the Snoqualmie Tribe partners with community-based Native artists to reclaim control of the market for products featuring Native art and the narratives they hold. Eighth Generation maintains a strong intention to grow the business capacity of their artist partners through the Inspired Natives™ Project.
