What we do today, will someday be traditional.
The Spo7ez Workhouse showcases the Squamish and Lil’wat Nation’s living cultures of Regalia Making. Witness the creative process of building our Culture Performance Team’s new Regalia. This is a project that connects us to our past. View our current regalia, masks, cedar skirts, baskets, tools and accessories. Ask our team about the process of crafting buckskin, wood carving, obsidian knapping and sewing a button blanket inspired cape.
The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre is creating a theatrical production called ‘The Story of Spo7ez’, a story based on the ancient village site of Spo7ez, a village shared by both Nations. The story takes the audience on a journey through our land and provides a glimpse into the daily life of the people of Spo7ez and the animals that inhabit their territory. This is a story of learning to live together in peaceful coexistence and tells of the hard lessons we learn when we forget these basic human principles.
