The First Nations of British Columbia, Canada welcome you! British Columbia has known the footsteps of Aboriginal people from time immemorial. We are the indigenous peoples of this land whose traditions and culture remain strong, rich and diverse and whose life has been shaped by the land, oceans, climate and creatures within.

Our land is British Columbia. A vast beautiful landscape that is as diverse as its people. From the rocky shoreline carved by the ocean to the peaks of the highest mountains and the beautiful plains of the interiorthis is our home.

Here in BC you can watch native artists carve a totem pole, explore our traditional lands and waters with an Aboriginal guide, experience a traditional First Nations healing and purification lodge with a native elder, view exquisite Pacific Northwest native art in art galleries, cultural centers and museums, sample traditional foods and award-winning wines, relax in native-owned resorts, campgrounds, log cabins and bed & breakfast inns and even enjoy a round of golf on a native-owned championship golf course!
