Made In Michigan, USA


TENKEH is an ode to Anishinaabe culture through streetwear. Established in 2018 in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, we take pride in crafting unique and stylish designs that weave together fashion and heritage. Our mission is to spread positivity and promote the rich tapestry of the Native American culture.


The Story Behind the Name:

TENKEH, originally known as TK Streetwear, holds a deeply personal significance. It was born in memory of my cousin Tommy Lee Kahgegab, who tragically lost his battle with addiction. By transforming the brand into TENKEH, we strive to honor his memory and contribute to a mission larger than ourselves.



To create fashion that tells a story, fostering pride in Native American heritage while spreading positivity and awareness about addiction.
