AICHO's food boxes started out as a way to make sure the residents at the American Indian Community Housing Organization had enough to eat... But the boxes, originally intended to feed and comfort AICHO's residents, grew into a way to feed and comfort elders and others on reservation around the state, and, in the process feed and comfort the producers who create the food themselves.

Like many retailers, Indigenous First Arts and Gift Shop's profits were slashed as customers could only shop for products in-store. Coordinator Jazmin Wong's work on a website for the store couldn't have come at a better time, she said. She was able to quickly list all of its products on its new website, indigenousfirst.org, which has since boosted sales.

Bummer. You forgot to order something online for your sister, and now shipping is going to cost a million dollars. None of us should be ordering as much as we do online, anyway, and if you’re looking for culinary-minded gifts, you’re in the right region. Locally owned shops filled with locally made products are abundant. Before you lies our curated gift guide for your people who love to eat, cook and set a nice table. None of this says “I’m from a gas station.”
