Upon entering, visitors are greeted with a song, escorted around the site on a guided tour and invited to watch a film highlighting the First Nations history and their territory surrounding the cultural center. You'll even be encouraged to immerse yourself in the culture by making traditional crafts. What's more, on-site ambassadors who are part of the Squamish or Lil'wat nations will regale you with captivating stories about the legends, ceremonies and songs of their people.
