Approval process for a Vendor (Artist), Canada & International

The vendor approval process is necessary to ensure that Vendor (artists) have met all of the membership criteria and that their product(s) are genuine indigenous products

Vendor (artist) must ensure that they have submitted any and all requested  documentation and effectively accommodate  all questions within their  application  openly and honestly.

The next step is that the Board of Indigenous Advisors of Indigene Arts will review all information submitted by the vendor (artist) and apply all Indigene Arts policies. The board will deliberate any entry within a short time frame   when a vendor’s application has entered the review process. 

The Board of Indigenous Advisors will conduct a review of the online marketplace from time to time to ensure that all items sold on the marketplace are within the policy guidelines. If your item(s) is ever  questioned in regards to various concerns (e.g. genuine, authenticity, non-indigenous manufacturer, etc.) and has been brought to the attention of the Board of Indigenous Advisors, they in-turn will investigate any issues to determine that the product  actually meets all required guidelines.

Vendor (artist) will be notified on what and why and the item will be removed. 

Indigene Arts reserves the right to decide what may or may not be sold on our website. 

Indigene Arts remain a strong supporter and advocate for Indigenous artists and guarantee to all buyers and customers that each product and artist are genuine. Please see our “Prohibited Items” policy to determine if your product is right for the Indigene Arts Marketplace.
