British Columbia has the highest diversity of distinct First Nations in Canada, with more than 50 First Nations in more than 200 communities.

Interpretive centres, museums and tours throughout the province provide opportunities to learn about Aboriginal stories, ceremonies and traditions.

Aboriginal artwork, carvings and totem poles can be seen at galleries and museums, or even standing in their original, historic locations.

Some highlights include the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver, the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre in Whistler, the Haida Heritage Centre on Haida Gwaii, and the Nk’mip Desert Cultural Centre in Osoyoos – but these are just a few of the many places and tours sharing Aboriginal cultural experiences in BC.
