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

Now in our 5th Holiday season!! 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 four 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. This Holiday Authentically Indigenous is proud to curate another great shopping experience for you - Saturday November 23, 2019.


Our Holiday show in 2018 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!
