Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre

Indigenous cultural ambassadors share their language, art, and culture at centers dedicated to learning, sharing, and preserving the wealth of Indigenous culture, from an Indigenous perspective.

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.

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.

Tuckkwiowhum Village (pronounced Tuck-wee-ohm) is a First Nations heritage site located in Nlakapamux territory, 5 km south of Boston Bar, British Columbia. Tuckkwiowhum Village was inspired by our desire to preserve and share the culture and traditions of the Nlakapamux people. The name Tuckkwiowhum means a great berry picking place and this area still boasts lush forests and beautiful rolling hills still plentiful with huckleberries, blueberries, and medicinal plants. Enjoy an historical adventure in BC's Fraser Canyon where you will be immersed in our rich culture. See the summer lodges, smoke house, food caches, sweat lodge, earth ovens and a winter pit house. Come to the village and just as it was thousands of years ago, you can visit with one of our respected Elders, who are happy to share our traditional stories. Enjoy a unique Tipi camping experience or enjoy a peaceful getaway in our campsite area. Our longhouse can also be rented for weddings & other special events!
