November is Native American Heritage Month

Celebrate Native American businesses and find support.

Every November, SBA recognizes and celebrates the contributions of Native American small business owners. Their businesses provide  employment (according to 2022 U.S. Census Bureau data, Native American businesses employed 307,933 people) and support indigenous entrepreneurship, but these businesses also encourage tribal self-preservation, contributing to vital local economies in traditionally underserved areas.

Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiian businesses:

  • Own approximately 56,906 businesses nationwide
  • Have approximately $64.9 billion in receipts
  • Pay an estimated $15.4 billion in annual payroll
