Gifts of the Raven
This Vancouver International Airport (YVR) shop is located pre-security on level three in the international departures wing. The open-air retail space is museum-like, with wooden ellipses, structural steel “totems,” and common materials from the region used throughout. Gifts of the Raven stocks First Nations (native Canadians) artwork, clothing, dolls, leather goods, books, and moccasins. Consider a gift incorporating imagery of the raven—it's a symbol of great importance to the indigenous people.
