What is Idaho Rez Rising? 

Whether you live on a reservation, are part of the Native diaspora, or believe in #BuyNative, Idaho Rez Rising is an opportunity to connect with Native owned businesses across Idaho. A website with an online directory to find a service you need locally or contact an artist whose work you want to support from afar.


What does Idaho Rez Rising Offer? 

In today's world, more people search online for the products and services they need. The Internet never sleeps, and every portal you offer online gives your business a virtual 24-hour showroom. This allows potential customers to research your product or service after business hours, and in the privacy of their own home. With the Idaho Rez Rising Directory, you can have a simple card in the directory or have a full catalog listing. Either way, we will do the work for you once you provide the information! The directory listings are only for Native American Businesses that either affilate with an Idaho Tribe or that live in Idaho. 


Additional services and options that are included:

ONBOARDING SERVICE A Member Assistant will do all the work of setting up your product and services displays so that you can focus on what’s important - running your business.
