Westbank First Nation known across Canada for it's governmental and business leadership sought a vision to showcase the artistic talent of WFN community. WFN Family have respectfully inherited the intergenerational artistic talents that are worthy to both nationally and international platforms. It includes the talent of painters, carvers and authentic handmade crafters. Syilx Trail Gift Store’s vision is to showcase the Syilx culture through the beautiful artwork of our people.
Our mission is to prioritize the sale of authentic local indigenous art with WFN band members while educating the customer about the story of the artwork. Visitors who come to our valley to experience the beauty will have the opportunity to learn more about our peoples through the artistic and cultural elements you will find at Syilx Trail Gift Store and Gallery. As a subsidiary of the Ntityix Development Corporation, it is our pleasure to be your host in collaboration with WFN owned Sncewips Museum.
Following your tour of the museum we invite you to visit us for your unique gift to take home to remember your experience and visit.
