Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre

The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre (SLCC) is the first centre of its kind in Canada. Two nations came together to celebrate and share their cultures with the world while creating meaningful employment opportunities for members of both the Sk̲wxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation, Coast Salish) and Líl̓wat7ul (Lil’wat Nation, Interior Salish) Nations. Designed to evoke the form of a Squamish Longhouse and Lil’wat Istken (earthen dwelling), the SLCC embodies the spirit of partnership between two unique Nations who wish to preserve, grow, and share their traditional cultures.

Knowledgeable Cultural Ambassadors from the Squamish and Lil’wat Nations share their cultural teachings with guests during the hourly guided tour. Offered on the hour, every hour, 10am – 4pm Tuesdays – Sundays, the guided tour experience includes:

                                         • A traditional welcome song
                                         • Fifteen minute film
                                         • Exhibit tour
                                         • Cedar-rope bracelet making activity

The gift shop and café can be accessed without paying the admission fee to the Centre – making it the perfect place in Whistler to pick up a memorable gift.
