About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Native American Books & Art
Location Minneapolis, MN, United States
Introduction BirchBark Books and Native Arts is a joint venture of local book lovers, writers, Native American artists, neighborhood artisans, carpenters, and painters. We are an independent bookstore, with all of the accompanying quirks and non-corporate eccentricities. As the malling of America continues, it is our mission to be other. We offer the best in literary fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, and have a special focus on books by and about Native Americans. Minneapolis has one of the largest concentrations of urban Natives in the Untied States, and we wanted to provide a locus for Native intellectual life. We are native owned (Louise Erdrich is an enrolled Turtle Mountain Chippewa) and our staff is of either Native background, or exceedingly Native-friendly! We feature Native arts, jewelry, gifts, Native grown and harvested wild rice, maple syrup, jellies, coffee, popcorn, corn, beans, and medicinal teas.
Interests Full service bookstore focused on Native American authors and titles. Native art and wild food products.
