THE QUW'UTSUN' CULTURAL AND CONFERENCE CENTRE IS A WORLD-CLASS DESTINATION.
Twenty years ago the Quw'utsun' People embarked on a project to raise the profile of Quw'utsun' knitters, carvers and jewelry makers, while displaying the Quw'utsun' culture and history to the world. In 1986 the Cowichan Tribes outbid twenty organizations and bought the Cultural Center buildings from Expo '86. The Cultural Centre opened its doors in 1990. Take a tour with an experienced tour guide and have an authentic Aboriginal meal at the Riverwalk Cafe all in the splendour of the beautiful Cowichan River.
