British Columbia has a very rich aboriginal history going back thousands of years. Explore the cultural diversity of British Columbia’s First Nations, which reflects the diversity of the province’s landscape. Visit the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver and cultural centres in small aboriginal communities; meet with First Nations artists, elders and other community representatives. Immerse yourself in First Nations culture by sampling aboriginal cuisine, learning how to weave with cedar bark, carve wood or paddle a cedar canoe. Watch aboriginal dance performances, listen to First Nations storytellers and stay in a First Nations lodge.
