Native Business Magazine Ships Premiere Issue Across Indian Country

The premiere November issue of Native Business Magazine is hot off the presses and currently shipping all across Indian Country.

Publishers Gary and Carmen Davis started Native Business roughly four months ago. “We were told it was going to be impossible to achieve our goal of publishing our first print publication, and shipping it nationwide, by November,” they said.

Today their actions are testament to their determination and integrity. Nearly 10,000 issues will begin arriving across the United States, Canada — and as far away as Europe.

“We are proud to be the only 100 percent Native-owned and -operated business magazine in publication today. We celebrate Native American Heritage Month by remembering that entrepreneurship is one of the most traditional activities conducted by our ancestors across turtle island, ensuring the self-sufficiency and sustainability of our people and communities,” said Gary Davis, publisher of Native Business Magazine. “We, along with thousands of other Native Entrepreneurs, continue to carry forward that tradition.”
