Power in Unity

Indian country commerce

It is difficult for Indigenous American people to compete with larger population racial groups who can more easily form support coalitions. Brands generally don’t look for ways to interact with the indigenous demographic. In fact, rather than supporting and promoting Indigenous platforms, Brands often claim design and traditions as their own and consider it open public domain. This lack of focus on and promotion of indigenuity leaves a fragmented group of people to fend for themselves. There is a need to provide a more efficient mechanism for businesses and consumers to identify and locate products and services that, in many cases, can and should only be provided by American Indians.
