The Lil'wat Cultural Centre is a tremendous introduction to the world of native Canadian art, as well as the culture of the Squamish and Lil'wat Nation. The SLCC is an effort to preserve and present the traditions and artifacts, and was born out of a historic protocol signed in 2001.
The gallery showcases art from Squamish Lil’wat, and other Canadian artists, like master carver Charles Joseph, otherwise known as Boone.
