Our Story


Co-founder sisters: Melrene Saloy and Autumn EagleSpeaker, pictured promoting Authentically Indigenous on CTV Morning Live Calgary December 2018

We are a Sister-led team that aims to create opportunities for Indigenous crafters, makers, artists, and entrepreneurs. We are located in Mohkinstsis - Calgary, Alberta, Treaty 7. 

Now in our 7th year!! Beginning in 2015 Authentically Indigenous Craft Market launched curating our first Craft Show featuring many Indigenous artists.

We keep our vendor fees low so that all will have the opportunity to showcase their products or businesses. Our vendors range from small size seasonal crafters to more established artists to small-medium businesses. 

For the past seven years, we have curated for Calgarians and Albertans alike, a very unique and very Indigenous  Craft Market - hosted in the heart of downtown at the Kerby Centre. 


Our Holiday shows in 2021 brought two great shopping dates and included a visit with Santa! We also curated previous spring and Stampede shopping shows. Stay tuned to the website for future events, including pop-up shops!

Looking for Indigenous Vendors? Authentically Indigenous can assist!!! We can curate vendors for your needs. Contact us for details.

Thank you for supporting Authentically Indigenous Craft Market and for supporting local Indigenous crafters, makers, artists, and entrepreneurs this holiday season!
