First Nations Cultural Programs
The First Nations Cultural programs are available year-round offering a 45-minute presentation and a 45-minute craft. The program price includes Grouse Mountain Admission, snowshoe rentals (winter) or Ecowalk (summer), guides/storytellers, craftwork, and a delicious West Coast lunch.
Our regular First Nations Cultural Program
is suitable for students Grade K-12 and adults. Guests are taught about respect and caring for one another in their community and environment; traditional cedar uses and the importance cedar played in First Nations history; the importance of storytelling and learning about their own culture and family customs; and the meaning behind symbols and legends and honouring them through a traditional dance. The crafts are examples of traditional First Nations art using templates created by our First Nations elder.
Through the First Nations Heart program, our First Nations Elder shares some of his experience living in a Residential School, talks about respect and caring for one another, and opens the floor to a short Q&A at the end of the program. During the craft session, students will be guided by a First Nations elder and discuss creative outlets. This program is designed for secondary students and adults as some content may be unsettling for a younger audience.
Our full-day First Nations programs have been designed to meet Big Ideas and Curricular Competencies for Social Studies and Physical Education for Grades K-12.
