Our vision is to revive, preserve, and demonstrate our language, practices, values and traditional way of life for the benefit of our people. We also want to share our culture with other First Nations and people from around the world.
Kwanlin Dün values, languages and traditions are deeply rooted in our community and in our lands. We camp, hunt, fish, and gather berries and medicines within our Traditional Territory as we have for thousands of years.
We will be creating exhibits to promote understanding and appreciation of what it means to be a member of Kwanlin Dün.
Our large corridor will be lined with interpretive displays that tell the story of our people, from at least 8,000 years ago to present day. Our classrooms and artist studio will be busy with language instruction and other cultural activities that promote a sense of community, spiritual and personal well-being.
Our events will help to share knowledge about Kwanlin Dün’s culture and traditions in order to preserve them for future generations.
We will have activities that welcome visitors and promote awareness of our culture through the sharing of our stories, art, music and traditional food. We will also be celebrating and showcasing First Nation artistic talent.
Be sure to come and experience our new cultural home on the riverfront!
