In Courtenay, on Vancouver Island, I discovered Spirits of the West Coast Gallery. They show Native American jewelry and native art including Haida art, Haida prints and Kwakiutl masks. Beautiful carvings and sculptures made of yellow and red cedar, yew wood, box
wood, alder and argillite. Original Native
Indian Jewelry made of gold, silver, argillite. Stunning painting and prints. Friendly people who have personal contact with the
artists and masters from the Haida and Kwakiutl Nations. I highly recommend this gallery.
