A Note on Appropriation:

A few people complained on my last post about cultural appropriation. I myself am an enrolled member of the Mvskoke Creek Nation of Oklahoma on my mother’s side, and of Western Cherokee ancestry on my father’s side. I have written a plethora of posts regarding cultural appropriation of NDN tribes. I would never compile a list that would condone the further abuse of my people. When you are buying something that is authentically native-made, you are not appropriating, you are appreciating. This is so because you are supporting Natives by purchasing articles from them that they have consented to sell and that they benefit financially from directly. I have researched, or know personally, all of the entries on this list and have disclosed their tribal information in order to reassure consumers that they are legally creating and selling their wares in accordance with the American Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990.
