Northern BC is filled with the art, buildings and artifacts of the Aboriginal peoples who first inhabited – and pioneers who later settled – this land. Both remain deeply connected to the region.

Discover the talents of local artists and artisans in each of the communities you visit. See a bounty of Aboriginal art – from paintings to sculptures and finely-made crafts – throughout the region. Museums evoke the area's rich and vibrant history, from early Aboriginal life to the opening up of the great frontier, while heritage sites make that history come alive.
