Fodor's Expert Review Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre

Whistler Indigenous Sight Fodor's Choice
A collaborative project located on the shared territories of the Squamish Nation and Lil'wat Nation, this cultural center is designed to celebrate these two distinct Salish Nations. The concrete, cedar, and fir structure melds the longhouse concept of the coastal Squamish people with the traditional pit house of the interior Lil’wat people. Inside, carvings adorn the walls and displays of art, artifacts, and tools reveal the similarities and differences of the Nations. Try to catch one of the regularly scheduled guided tours offered on the hour, every hour, 10 am–4 pm. The on-site café, which serves contemporary food with a First Nations twist—think venison chili, bannock tacos, or smoked salmon panini—is worth a visit itself.
