View artifacts that have made their way home, hear stories from young Indigenous language speakers, and try your hand at traditional crafts like wool weaving and drum making. Centres on Kwakwa̱ka̱ʼwakw land, shared Squamish-Lil’wat territory, or on Haida land welcome you to participate in a shared cultural journey to protect and revitalize living Indigenous cultures.
