It always seems like things should slow down after the holiday season. In my head I always envision less snow, warmer weather, and fewer commitments. Funny enough, that’s never how it works. All of the sudden it’s February. How did that happen? To many people, February means only one thing…Valentine’s Day! If the thought of picking out a gift for your significant other is making you cringe, stop by Black Bear Crossings Café and Banquet Center. We carry a wide variety of Native American arts and crafts that make for a unique, one-of-a-kind gift for the most important person in your life.

Native American jewelry

We proudly display our choices of Native American artwork, jewelry, and more.

At Black Bear Crossings, we showcase the paintings of Behon LaPrairie, a local Native American artist, on the walls in the café. However, we don’t just want you to be able to admire the work of native artists, we also want you to be able to take some of it with you. We stock a display case full of native art from local tribes and from many tribes across the country, available for purchase. Not only are these pieces original and hand-crafted, but they also make beautiful gifts for yourself or a loved one. With a variety of jewelry, moccasins, birch bark crafts, and wild rice, you are sure to find something to express your love in a meaningful and original way. We change our selection frequently; so stop back often to see check out the display!
