Best Canada Resort Travel Vacations For Summer And Winter

Top 10 Vacation Spots in British Columbia

The 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia were brought to us by the Vancouver and for the first time, the Four Host First Nations as equal partners. The events of the Olympics: Olympic Festivals held before the Games, the two weeks of the Games and Cultural Events, the Paralympics, and the Four Host First Nations Pavilions introduced first-time visitors to the area who will plan to come back many times to such a wondrous natural beauty in the Pacific Northwest.

Now that we know our friends – Vancouver and Whistler BC – a little better, since the wonder of Winter 2010, we can travel back and experience memories and new adventures. The Four Host First Nations will welcome us as old friends.

1) Aboriginal Pavilion and Chiefs’ House? – Visit Royal BC Museum

Elements of the Aboriginal Pavilion have been dispersed into British Columbia and other places in Canada, but continue in various exhibits, including in the Royal BC Museum, and around up island sites on Vancouver Island.

First Nations received a new status in Canada, thanks to the 2010 Olympics and Paralympics, with their full partnership as sponsors and hosts of the Games. The Aboriginal Pavilion was so successful, that it could have been made a permanent installation, had commercial space been available long-term in Downtown Vancouver.

The Royal BC Museum in downtown Victoria BC, across the water by ferry on Vancouver Island, is a well maintained venue I have visited. It continues its ongoing improvements and additions of new exhibits, particularly of First Nations and tableau of indigenous animals of BC. Visit online with the First Peoples Gallery. Artist Bill Reid has several items in the museum.

The Four Host First Nations, including the Lil’wat, Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations are indigenous to Vancouver and Whistler and welcome both visitors to their historic sites and customers to their businesses. Their companies include upscale restaurants and chefs, book publishing houses, artists, fashion design companies, traditional arts and crafting, and several other lines of commerce.

First Nations, Inuit and M├ętis groups still present their cultures and entertain with music, dance, drumming, stories, and friendship. The Pavilion strengthened the respect and friendship of others for these Indigenous peoples and now visitors look for them every day.
