The Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre - where rivers, mountains and people meet - embodies the spirit of partnership between Whistler's two Native cultures, the Squamish Aboriginal people and the Lil'wat Aboriginal people. Squamish Nation territory extends from North Vancouver through Squamish to Whistler, and Lil'wat Nation territory starts in Whistler and extends north through Pemberton to Mount Currie. Our traditional territories overlap in Whistler. The Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre, the first of its kind in Canada, offers guests the opportunity to learn about two distinctly different BC First Nations.

The Squamish and Lil'wat people welcome you to our Cultural Centre. We are open to the public daily between 9:30am - 5:00pm. We have a deep connection to this land ­- our people have lived here since time immemorial.

Meet our Squamish and Lil'wat ambassadors. Take a guided or self guided tour through our museum, exhibits and contemporary galleries. Join us in song and dance. Watch our spectacular 15 minute film showcasing our traditional and modern cultures. Engage in storytelling and make a craft; learn about Salish wool and cedar weaving.

Already a landmark, this magnificent venue is designed in the form of our two traditional dwellings; a Squamish Longhouse and Lil'wat Istken (underground pit dwelling). The Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre adds a rich and distinct BC Aboriginal Cultural component to the resort community of Whistler.
