Only Good Things

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—to all the good things—and you will see that everything truly is connected.

Travellers are advised to speak directly with tourism operators before visiting Indigenous communities to ensure they are travelling responsibly. Learn more about how best to plan your next Indigenous travel experience in BC.
