Use “native to” when you’re talking about a category, characteristic, or species; and is used as adjective.

Ex. There is a unique business culture native to the U.S.


Use “a native of” when you’re talking about where a person was born, and is used as noun.
* Also, the letter 'a' should always precede the word 'native' as shown below:

Ex. a native of: It infects those who are not even a native of America.
