MNPs Indigenous made holiday giveaway

We’re excited to announce our third annual holiday partnership with some amazing Indigenous brands to celebrate the power of Indigenous entrepreneurship. We have 7 incredible giveaways (including some very special items and adventures). For the past 40 years, we have invested significant time and resources developing and delivering practical solutions for Indigenous groups, including First Nations, Tribal Councils, organizations, and Indigenous community - or individual - owned businesses.

We are always looking for different avenues to amplify the breadth and richness of the Indigenous entrepreneurship community and this holiday season in no different. 7 grand prizes, each from brands that reflect the diversity and ingenuity of Indigenous businesses across the country.

When you support an Indigenous business, you’re supporting and preserving the creativity, heritages, families, and communities of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples.

Spirit Bear Coffee Company

Category: Food & drink

Raven was sent by the creator of the universe, to redesign the earth after the first great ice age of cleansing. After Mother Earth added the foliage, Raven made all the new animals big and small. Then lastly, he made a Spirit Bear — a symbolic gift of peace and harmony to all creatures of the earth.

Inspired by this story, Spirit Bear Coffee Company was born.
