Potawatomi Gifts seeks Nishnabé artisans

Since its inception, the Citizen Potawatomi Gift Shop located within Citizen Potawatomi Nation’s Cultural Heritage Center has provided customers a one-stop shopping experience for Native-made and Native-inspired gifts. To continue offering the best quality, handmade art, jewelry, regalia and more, Potawatomi Gifts is looking for CPN members, as well as fellow Nishnabé, who are interested in having their work sold within the store.

“By featuring products and artwork created by CPN members and those from the greater Nishnabé community, it helps us share our culture and identity as well as promotes these talented artisans that have worked so hard to create each piece,” said Dr. Kelli Mosteller, CPN Cultural Heritage Center director.

Supporting CPN tribal members is at the heart of the Cultural Heritage Center’s mission. As an extension of this, the gift shop seeks potential merchandise created by CPN members and other Nishnabé that highlights Potawatomi culture while uplifting artistic expression.

The gift shop is currently looking for high-quality pieces of regalia, jewelry, beadwork, pottery, basketry, fiber art and more. Those interested in potentially having their work on display for purchase at the CPN Gift Shop, please complete this survey at cpn.news/cpnartists.

Potawatomi Gifts offers a vast selection of original pieces of art by Native American artists as well as supplies for artisans working on their own projects. Shop online today: giftshop.potawatomi.org.
