In the studio, emerging and established Indigenous artists work with forms and figures that express an ageless relationship to the land of present-day British Columbia. Visit Indigenous-owned and -curated collections of art made by Indigenous painters, jewellers, carvers, and weavers whose living stories as artists are connected to ancestral stories and experiences. There are many Indigenous galleries in BC where knowledge of the artist and the artist’s community deepens the connection to your art purchase.

The Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre is a three-story, 30,400-square foot award-winning cultural centre designed to blend the traditional Squamish Longhouse with the Lil'wat Istken. Cultural Ambassadors share their knowledge and stories with guests, augmenting the information shared throughout the centre's curated collection of artifacts and contemporary pieces. Traditional drum songs are shared at the top of each hour. The facility is designed to evoke a traditional Squamish longhouse and a Lil'wat Istken (pit house) and is surrounded by dramatic mountain scenery. This thriving cultural centre shares meaningful experiences, educating all, and lifts their two distinct cultures.
