Reflect on our history. Connect to the land. September 30 will be a day of reflection, stories, learning, and contemplation at the SLCC. The day will be filled with programming throughout the Great Hall, Theatre, Galleries, and out on the Mezzanine patio.

Join us on Saturday, September 30 in honour of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre. The SLCC invites you to experience and connect with immersive programming and storytelling of Skwxwú7mesh and Líl̓wat7úl – the living culture of the original people of the shared territory where Whistler resides. Hear guest speakers, experience Spo7ez cultural sharing, carving demonstration, and immersive crafts, enjoy First Nations-inspired cuisine and explore handcrafted art and keepsakes in the Gallery and Gift Shop.

By visiting and engaging with us at the SLCC, you play a part in honouring our mission to share meaningful experiences, educate all, and lift our distinct Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Líl̓wat7úl ways. The SLCC is a non-profit organization with 90% Indigenous staff from the Squamish Nation and the Lil’wat Nation, and proceeds are invested in training and revitalization programs.
