Indigenous Culture, Hiking & Walking, Museums, Heritage Sites, & Cultural Centres, Bear Watching & Wildlife Tours

We have been the stewards of the grizzly bear population in Homalco's traditional territory of Bute Inlet for over a decade, but the cultural and historical significance of this area spans thousands of years. Our guided bear tours take guests through the Bute Inlet and along the Orford River, where grizzly bear populations thrive during the salmon run. We also offer marine wildlife, and cultural tours, all of which are interwoven with knowledge from our traditional way of life. Our commitment to our guests is to share our traditional lands, to share perspective from our people, and to create a sense of connection with our indigenous culture. We welcome you to view the bears, learn about our connection to the land and wildlife, and become immersed in the beauty of the inlet. ʔiymot kʷunome (It is good to see you).

U'mista Cultural Centre

Indigenous Culture, Museums, Heritage Sites, & Cultural Centres

U'mista Cultural Centre is one of the longest-operating and most successful First Nations cultural facilities in BC, founded in 1980 as a ground breaking project to house potlatch artifacts which had been seized by government during an earlier period of cultural repression. The return of the potlatch artifacts not only provided U'mista's name ('the return of something important'), and sparked a general trend toward repatriation of First Nations and cultural artifacts, it caused the creation of a physical facility and human resources infrastructure which have been successfully operated for over two decades.U'mista now operates a modern museum and cultural education facility in Alert Bay. Their operations include the museum, an extensive art gallery and gift shop, group tours, and presentations by dance troupes. The facility hosts international scholars, and supports researchers in a range of disciplines.
