APORTA Shop acknowledges that we are situated on the traditional homelands of the Salish and Pend d’Oreille peoples. Further, we recognize that tribal peoples from the Salish, Pend d’Oreille and Kootenai people live and work among us today. Other tribal people traveled through and inhabited this place—we acknowledge them as well. APORTA SHOP is committed to promoting conversations about the ongoing struggles of Indigenous peoples of this region fully to obtain and exercise their rights as dual citizens—citizens of sovereign nations and of the United States of America.

Original art work by Stella Nall for APORTA Shop. Stella Nall is a Montana based multimedia artist and poet. She is a mixed race Indigenous woman, and a First Descendant of the Crow Tribe. She values aesthetics, critical thought and concept in her work, but above all seeks connections. Connection to others, to the earth, to her own identity and the history of her ancestors. Some of the imagery that she uses is drawn from tradition, and some she developed to speak to her own experiences. Her work is featured as the cover of this year’s edition of the Missoula based Cutbank Literary Magazine, has been published in Scribendi Literature and Arts Magazine, and will be the cover of the upcoming edition of Poetry Northwest. She is currently an exhibiting artist with the Art Mobile of Montana. Her art lives in numerous public and private collections, including The Montana Museum of Art and Culture, the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian.
