The Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Líḻwat Cultural Centre (SLCC) is the result of a pioneering and collaborative partnership between our two distinct nations: Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Líl̓wat7úl. The SLCC shares our two distinct cultures as a means to foster greater understanding of Indigenous peoples around the world. Whistler, a world-class resort destination, is situated on our shared territory, making it a natural setting for our authentic and distinctive cultures to be shared with an international audience. Daily operations at the SLCC include cultural sharing, museum tours, dining, and shopping opportunities that connect visitors with our knowledgeable Cultural Ambassadors.
The Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Líḻwat7ul Cultural Centre (SLCC) in Whistler is a non-profit initiative, an Indigenous-owned organization, and employs over 90% Indigenous Ambassadors. All proceeds are invested into meaningful employment, training (including Indigenous Youth Ambassador Program) and cultural revitalization programs for the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) and Lil̓wat7úl (Lil’wat Nation), through the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Líḻwat7ul Cultural Centre.
Your donation to the SLCC directly supports meaningful employment to our Indigenous community, and celebrates our living culture – song, storytelling and exhibitions for the world to witness. We raise our hands to you for investing in an authentic Indigenous organization – honouring the distinctive living culture of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Lil’wat7ul on the shared territory where Whistler resides.
