Buy Native 2012: Holiday Cards edition!
ok so I’ll be honest: I can’t afford to get each and every of my loved ones and friends a bunch of gifts (5 siblings, 4 parents, and like 16 first cousins later I’m tapped out!). but I do like to at least send nice winter holiday cards to let people know I’m thinking of them. I love the Buy Native campaign Jessica Metcalfe has spearheaded, so I figured I’d post a sample collection of some of the awesome Native-made cards for all the people like me who got families way too big!
from top to bottom, left to right: Majestic (Andy Everson; Kwakwaka’wakw), Salmonberry Twist (Rainey Nasugraq Hopson; Inupiaq), This is Winter (Kirk Brant; Mohawk), Wak’es (Francis Dick; Kwakwaka’wakw), assorted cards (Israel Shotridge; Tlingit), Butterfly Heart (Jamie Gentry; Kwakwaka’wakw), pony & buffalo giftcards (MisiZiibi; Anishinaabe…all proceeds benefit Frybread Love—an organization dedicated to serving homeless/at-risk teens in Minneapolis!); Home for the Holidays Horse (Chholing Taha; Cree)
