Travel Resources

These maps shows tribally owned gas stations and hotels within Michigan. This is for information purposes only. Please check on location, hours, availability of any business listed here. Businesses are determined to be tribally owned if they are listed on a tribe's website or if Bead & Powwow Supply have been able to verify tribal ownership with citizens of that community (i.e. we asked our friends on social media). We cannot and do not guarantee the accuracy of this list.

If there is a business missing from this list, or if ownership has changed, please let us know via email at
