We are Native Max.
It all started with just a magazine. Today, Native Max is an award-winning multimedia brand with a constellation of platforms spanning across print, web, digital, mobile, social and more. Through our properties, signature events, strategic partnerships, unique product extensions and engaging content, we put the reader at the center. Founder Kelly Holmes (Cheyenne River Lakota) set out to create a platform that featured positive people and stories of Indian Country in a creative way. Native Max Magazine launched in 2012 as a print magazine, the country’s first publication that featured Native fashion. Native Max Magazine quickly became a national sensation. Today, it has evolved into a digital company with a constellation of platforms spanning across print, digital, signature events, strategic partnerships, unique product extensions, engaging content, and more.
To educate and present the unique beauty of indigenous cultures, and to replace cultural appropriation with appreciation, ultimately reshaping the indigenous media landscape. Native Max incorporates fashion and style, entertainment, art, health and fitness, current events and culturally related articles. Native Max also sets forth inspirational and educational stories into each publication. Native Max will not only entertain the reader, but also educate its reader.
