Blaze of Love: Choose Native-Made for Your Valentine

You know us!: We are always promoting Native-made art, fashion, and other items, and we show no signs of slowing down. New Native-owned businesses are popping up all the time, and it's never been easier to pick out something totally unique and special for your loved ones.

To help the cause, we selected 24 gift ideas that range from a mix-tape download to beaded bling, from a cozy knit cowl scarf to a bold shark tooth pendant and everything in between (like the unisex Power Quill Cuff by Michael Red Cloud pictured left).

These are in no particular order, and they are great for people of all ages, backgrounds, preferences, connections, and whatever else! Express your appreciation, surprise your mate, and support artists, small businesses, and economic growth in Indian Country. It's a win-win-win situation. Scroll down to view our suggestions now (and feel free to pass this link on to your significant other with a big ol' *hint hint* and a little ol' *wink wink*).
