The Westbank First Nation (WFN) officially has one more business in its community.
Local residents gathered at the Spirit of the Lake Native Boutique on Sunday, Dec. 1 at 12 p.m. at 1960-A Nancey Way to celebrate the store’s grand opening.
During the opening celebrations, attendees were treated to a prayer and blessing, a ribbon cutting and light refreshments while they shopped.
The store offers over 170 Indigenous items like artwork, jewelry and household items that have been collected from across Canada, according to the WFN.
The business was put together by store owner Tasha Swite, who said the store was created in honour of her own Syilx culture.
