Biz Directory

Buy Native Biz Directory Overview


We wish to return to a time of trade and exchange where we are no longer separated by arbitrarily drawn nation-state borders. The Buy Native Biz Directory is just one of the many ways we're working to revitalize Native Trade. In 2020 we began developing a new modern directory to provide a service that elevates and showcases Native trade and exchange nationwide. MNIBA's team and in partnership with Bearsoft Corp. have created a business directory informed by Native-owned businesses.

The business directory has been designed from the ground up with Native trade and exchange in mind, making it easier to locate Native businesses, artists, professionals, social enterprises, nonprofits, tribal colleges and tribal governments. When you use MNIBA's business directory you can feel confident that you're supporting and buying Native.



MNIBA's Buy Native Biz Directory was created with Native business in mind. MNIBA listened and the design was informed by the Native communities, businesses and organizations we serve.

Whether you're a procurement officer looking for Native-owned businesses or committed to #BuyNative, finding a Native business or organization is quick and easy.
