December Community Tour
Join us for a community tour and meet Lluvia Merello, Founder of Portland Indigenous Marketplace on Thursday, December 7th from 5-7pm. Guests will meet Lluvia and hear her story, then have an opportunity to tour our building and explore the Portland Indigenous Marketplace holiday pop up shop.
Lluvia Merello registered her first business, Indigenous Come Up, in 2018 where she designs and creates everything from stress balls to jewelry. Through growing her business, Lluvia founded the Portland Indigenous Marketplace to create an inclusive space that supports creativity and culture, where businesses of color and Indigenous origin will feel at home. Lluvia was born in the sacred valley of the Incas, in a mud hut with only her parents and sisters present to welcome her into this world. She is proud to be Quechua, Andean/Inca (Indigenous to Peru).
