Four generations of the Tripp family, descended from the Deisheetaan Clan of the Tlingit Nation, have cultivated close relationships with local artists and crafts people. Their shop (and online store) sells everything from baskets, jewelry, knives, carved masks, moccasins, and bentwood boxes to one-of-a-kind collectible items such as a dazzling hand-carved rattle in the form of an oyster catcher bird. —Edward Readicker Henderson
Owned and operated by local Native Alaskans from the Tlingit Nation, this store in the historic Seward Building on Franklin Street features art and clothes from First Nations artists throughout Alaska and northwest Canada. It’s an ideal spot to find uniquely Alaskan pieces, including carved wood totems, masks and paddles and ornately designed moccasins and jewelry.
