Indigenous Shopping and Responsible Wishlists

Need a little pick-me-up? Self-care can take the form of new artwork to beautify your personal space, a set of sparkling earrings for your date night collection, a gift for a faraway friend, or an addition to your skincare ritual.

Indigenous gifts for self, home, life, and learning.

As hosts or guests, we give and receive gifts for the joy and wellness of all. Indigenous-owned galleries are located all across BC, featuring work from crafters and artisans that represent the diverse Nations and perspectives. Most galleries feature online sales and provide shipping to customers all around the world. 

Shopping at Indigenous-owned stores in BC supports Indigenous economies and communities in BC.

Indigenous shopping has shifted to include online options while always representing and hosting from the Indigenous communities and lands that are called BC. Literature for learning spaces, traditional medicines, handcrafted jewelry, drums, and larger custom gifts, clothing, and curated items that express Indigenous values and give back to the Indigenous business owners guided by their cultures, lands, and languages. 

Indigenous retailers offer secure online checkout and can arrange delivery worldwide. Visit Indigenous galleries, shops, and studios in British Columbia–online for convenience or in-person for a retail experience rooted in #IndigenousBC community and culture.
