The Squamish and Lil’wat Nations have coexisted respectfully as neighbours since time immemorial, thriving on the bounty of the ocean, the rivers, and the land — living in close relationship with the world. Both cultures are grounded in rich, ancient traditions, and continue to grow and evolve in a modern world.
The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre (SLCC) has been built to share their cultural knowledge to inspire understanding and respect amongst all people.
The building is designed to evoke the longhouses of the Squamish people and the Istken (traditional earthen pit house) of the Lil’wat people with a modern architectural interpretation.
The Cultural Centre, located in beautiful Whistler BC, embodies the spirit of partnership between two unique Nations who wish to preserve, grow and share our traditional cultures. It stands as testimony to their proud heritage — from time immemorial to the present.
