Kunstwerke, Schnitzereien und Totempfähle der First Nations sind in vielen Galerien und Museen ausgestellt oder befinden sich noch immer an ihren ursprünglichen historischen Stätten.

Zu den Highlights zählen das Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver, das Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre in Whistler, das Haida Heritage Centre auf Haida Gwaii und das Nk'mip Desert Cultural Centre in Osoyoos –, aber das sind nur einige der zahlreichen Stätten und Touren, die Ihnen das kulturelle Leben der First Nations in BC näherbringen.
