British Columbia – Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, Gulf Islands.
Tsawwassen Inn, 1 day is spent in the lower mainland, (Vancouver area) getting to know one of the local nations – Tsawwassen, Sto:lo, Musqueam.

Larger than many countries, Vancouver Island, stretches 450 km (280 miles) in length and from 80km (50 miles) to 100km (62miles) in width. 2 days are spent following the east coast of Vancouver Island, visiting the Quw’utsun (world renown knitters) and the Kwakwaka’watw Nations.
In every Nation we meet, drumming and dancing are apart of their culture. We may even learn some of their ancient songs. Ferry through the Gulf Islands and return to Tsawwassen Inn on mainland.
