Indigenous guides can lead you on lesser travelled paths to places of historical and cultural significance.

Indigenous communities in British Columbia share some of these significant places with the public and offer valuable opportunities for visitors to witness the endurance of ancient cultures. Active ancient fishing sites and petroglyphs are hidden in the forest along the Fraser River; historic villages and towering totem poles remain on northern coasts.
