Kayáchtn / Kalhwá7acw / Welcome

Welcome to the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre (SLCC) – the heart of Whistler’s authentic Indigenous experience – a First Nations Museum, Art Gallery and Gift Shop, and Thunderbird Café. Connect with Cultural Ambassadors as they share a traditional drum song, an inspiring short film, and take guests on a guided tour of the Museum sharing stories from two distinct Nations the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and the Lil̓wat7úl. Experience distinctive carved house posts, canoes, spindle whorls, weaving, regalia, bold artwork, and artifacts throughout the museum and galleries. Admire the extraordinary building designed to evoke a Squamish Longhouse and Lil’wat Istken – and see the traditional Longhouse and Istken Pithouse via the Mezzanine and an interpretive forest walk via the Salish Stroll. Shop handcrafted Northwest Coast art and authentic Indigenous keepsakes in the Gallery & Gift Shop, and enjoy First Nations-inspired cuisine at the Thunderbird Café.
