Towering totems, ceremonial regalia, salmon feasts, and contemporary art—these are all part of the province’s Indigenous heritage.

With more than 200 distinct First Nations, British Columbia is the most diverse province in Canada for Indigenous Peoples. Throughout BC, galleries, studios, cultural centres, and First Nations-run hotels and resorts offer insights into these ancient cultures. Wildlife viewing tours and cultural experiences led by Indigenous knowledge keepers are among the most exciting activities. The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre in Whistler, the Haida Heritage Centre in Haida Gwaii, and Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver are popular attractions.
