Find connections to the land, the people, and to something bigger than yourself. Explore ancient coastal villages with an Indigenous guide, learn about traditional plant medicines and healing techniques in nature, and more.

Everything is Connected

Length -

This year, experience Indigenous cultures and explore our interconnectedness. Visit museums and cultural centres, enjoy authentic cuisine, book a guided tour, and spend the night in an Indigenous-owned accommodation.

Listen to the stories, close your eyes and feel the music, open your heart and mind to thousands of years of knowledge and wisdom, and you will see that everything truly is connected.

Note that while some communities are ready to welcome British Columbians with open arms, others have chosen to remain closed to visitors for now. Please respect the wishes of each community.
