Shop for Indian crafts and souvenirs at a store more than a century old at Banff Indian Trading Post. Part store, part museum, this site offers a wide choice of genuine Native Canadian handicrafts, sterling silver jewelry, and pottery. You can purchase American Indian wear as well, like moccasins, mukluks, and fur clothes. The shop showcases lots of taxidermy crafts exhibited along the walls representing local wildlife. Ask the owner of the shop to show you the Merman--a creature of legends that is a mixture of animals; it's located in a tank in the back room and can be easily missed.

  • Cool store. A damn shame i didnt have $59.98, the price of the "lil native starter kit"... (it was a joke im sorry, dont beat me up)
  • Purchase 6 month ago the thread of the bottom moccasin is breaking apart. Like them but to expense for only lasting 6 month.
  • Way too many dead animals on the road. Pretty sad actually to see such beautiful animals mounted on the wall and not in the wild.
  • I placed an order online (in mid November) for a pair of moccasins to give to my father for Xmas this year. The next day a lady called to tell me that the size I wanted is out of stock, but they should be receiving a shipment from their supplier shortly. I told her that they are a gift for my father and she assured me that they would definitely be able to get them to me with plenty of time to spare. After not hearing back from them for 14 days I e-mailed them to inquire about the order. After not receiving an e-mail response I ended up calling them a few days later. The lady I talked to said that the shipment that they received did not include the size I needed, and that she didn't expect them to be receiving any more shipments from the manufacturer before Xmas. Obviously, that means that I have to look somewhere else for his gift, and it is only a couple of weeks until away.. What a gong show!
