ROCHESTER, N.Y. Keeping it small, local and native was the goal of Saturday’s first-ever Native. Made. Market hosted at the POP ROC Cafe in the City of Rochester.

The market brought together native educators, creatives and businesses to immerse people into the cultures of 10 native tribes.

“You don’t see very much Indigenous representation and so today being Small Business Saturday and being a small business ourselves, we decided to flip it around and honor and acknowledge those who were here before us and support the local and small Indigenous creatives and makers and educators,” said Angelina Hilton, Native. Made. Market event curator and POP ROC co-founder.

Shoppers got to browse accessories, apparel, bead art and more.
