Indigenous Peoples’ Day is on October 12 and is a day to honor the Native American peoples, history, and culture. Here at Yelp, we want to make sure that we celebrate and support Indigenous-owned businesses all year round, starting with sharing this list of yelper-approved local spots. From fry bread tacos, to comic books, to jewelry and more, enjoy this list of Indigenous-owned businesses from across the country!

If you’re visiting the Seattle area, you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for the Off the Rez food truck. Beverly W raves, “I’m still in disbelief that I actually experienced this miracle. I LOVE fry bread and to actually see it being offered on a food truck was truly amazing!”

According to our Yelp Twin Cities Community Manager Kara D, “Birchbark has a wide array of totally gift-able items, no matter their age or interest. I came across wonderful books, hand-crafted items, cultural relics, local food items, and toys. I love that there are a lot of  ‘Staff Pick’ notes, which are all insightful and thoughtfully written.”

Love to golf? So does Jin Y, who raves that at Las Vegas Paiute Resort, “the greens are really beautiful and you can definitely see they take a lot of time to keep them to high quality standards. The course has a lot of hooks on its fairways so it is fun to play here.”

For an authentic experience in New Mexico, follow Caitlyn B’s lead and head to Tiwa Kitchen Restaurant: “The burgers had great flavor and paired great with the cheese, as well as the airy fry bread. They came with classic green chili as well which was very spicy!”

If you find yourself in Albuquerque, trust Kirsten B’s advice and head to Red Planet Books and Comics: “Superbly curated store with a focus on Indigenous comics and books. This is an amazing resource and a must-stop for comics fans and librarians if you’re in town!”

Eighth Generation‘s flagship store is located inside of Pike Place Market in Seattle, and Meesh F “highly recommends visiting to purchase gifts that are beautiful, thoughtful and locally designed by talented Native artists. You don’t want to miss this store. Their blankets make terrific gifts; we got one for our wedding, and cherish it every day.”
