The Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region is the ancestral home of the Coast Salish peoples, and includes such First Nations bands as the Squamish, Lil’wat, Sto:lo, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh.

Visitors to the region can discover the dynamic culture of the Coast Salish First Nations through interpretive centres, archaeological sites, museums, galleries, and guided First Nations interpretive tours.

Many more opportunities for cultural exploration can be found in the four-season resort community of Whistler and in the vibrant, multicultural city of Vancouver, where Asian, European and First Nations influences can be seen all around. 

Museum of Anthropology 

Just west of Vancouver, the University of British Columbia’s architecturally stunning Museum of Anthropology boasts a vast collection of Aboriginal art and artifacts from BC and around the world. See traditional canoes, masks, jewellery, carvings, longhouse replicas and totem poles – including the world’s smallest totem pole, which measures just 4.4cm/1.7in, about the size of a pin.
