“Celebrating Canada’s First Nations History and Culture!”
To provide a shopping experience that will inform, inspire and satisfy the desire to purchase products that are meaningful as gifts or collectables while promoting Aboriginal culture and supporting Aboriginal artisans.
The Silver Moccasin opened it’s doors in August of 2007 and shortly thereafter launched the first online store, which has been growing and gathering a solid online customer base ever since. The physical store is just a small space with two of us operating it and occasionally we get help from our spouses, friends and family members.
Both my sister Linda and I are very happy to be doing what we do for a living! Making crafts and doing artwork is a favourite pastime of ours. Some of the products we produce ourselves and include original paintings on canvas, art cards, leather bags, jewelry, friendship and talking feathers, smudge kits and craft kits. Other products are purchased directly from Aboriginal artisans in our local community and other native communities in Canada.
We hope you enjoy your visit and please do come back so you don’t miss out on new products and updates on news and events!
Thank you for shopping at The Silver Moccasin!
