Fabulous
Jul. 2021
We visited this gallery because I had seen the jewelery online and was looking to replace my lost wedding ring. The gallery is filled with the most beautiful examples of west coast Indigenous artistic creations. The people in the store were so friendly and helpful, and provided us with the background of each of the artists. We found the perfect ring and are looking forward to a return visit. Highly recommended!!

An excellent gallery
Feb. 2021
This is a beautiful gallery that honours the spirit and intent of well-known and respected Indigenous artists to showcase their histories and cultures. I love that the staff are knowledgeable about the artists and the artists' "craft". Lovely, tasteful venue, and easy to view items, Prices are reasonable for the high quality of the products. Relaxed atmosphere. A great place to buy gifts.

Really worthy of a visit!!!!
Jun. 2019 • Couples
As an avid traveller, one comes across many shops selling "tourist stuff"!! This is not one of them... The items displayed are made by members of a "First Nation Group"... and, the quality and variety are certainly of interest. Whether you enjoy interesting and "culturally relevant" art, prints, accessories-- there is something affordable for "all ages"... This newly built "gallery/shoppe" is definitely worthy of a visit... and one will also have something(s) that remind one of the marvellous times, and beauty of Vancouver Island.

I hope that you found this review helpful.

Beautiful gallery.
Apr. 2018 • Friends
We stopped today.The actual building itself is beautiful inside and outside. The gallery has an outstanding view.
Inside the gallery, the displays are set up for ease. Items are grouped with like and all items are marked for price. I really liked the lack of clutter around the displays.
We found this to be a "gallery" and not a shop for tourists. We enjoyed our stop. The gentleman inside minding the gallery was friendly and helpful.

The new gallery is a must see!!
Nov. 2017 • Solo
I was fortunate to attend the grand opening of the new gallery premises that Spirits have constructed on their property. Cliche but I found it breathtaking, both the space and the art . The gold and silver rings and bracelets are outstanding as are the masks. Don't miss the prints in the accordion cabinet in the corner. If you have any interest in quality First Nations art, this is a place you don't want to miss.

By the way I have no idea what "Very much for the tourist and therefore necessary" means. This is by no means some sort of tourist trap though visitors do come here as well as locals.
