2013 BC Cultural Centre of the Year – The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre
New and Rotating Exhibits
We are proud to have the opportunity to host a variety of exhibits from both Nations and around the world. Please enjoy our new exhibits highlighted below.
Feature Exhibit: Pieces of the Past
On behalf of the Squamish Líl’wat Cultural Centre we welcome you to our shared territories and invite you to explore this exhibition that contains some of our most significant spiritual and cultural objects – some created and used by our ancestors over 3,000 years ago.
This is a monumental moment in the histories of our respective Nations — Sk-wx-wú7mesh (Squamish) and Lil’wat7úl (Líl’wat) to share these powerful connections with our past in such a public way. You will see a variety of objects, crafted thousands of years ago by our professionals, ensuring the survival of our families, communities, and Nations. This work provided spiritual and physical protection to enable us to survive thousands of years on this land and bring forward our indigenous knowledges and practices to ensure we continue to thrive today.

Towards a New Taxidermy is a series of animal mounts covered in modern materials to express relationship of humans and homes to the natural Beings and sustainable homes of the bioregion, and the continuing nature of human relationship to animals and Supernaturals.
