The richly woven tapestry of British Columbia can be directly attributed to the original First Nations inhabitants who settled the lands here. The history of Canada’s Indigenous communities is deep, complicated and often times painful. In spite of this, it’s impossible to fully appreciate British Columbia without recognizing the original inhabitants who settled here. There are over 200 unique First Nations and Métis bands in British Columbia, and each one contributes to our culture, history and the building of our future. Experience the culture firsthand, as you visit both Vancouver and Haida Gwaii. Urban pursuits provide excitement in Vancouver while serene Haida Gwaii will bring you solace among magnificent beaches and old-growth forests.
