Community Events

Nuyumbalees Cultural Centre first opened its doors in 1979 as a condition of the repatriation of the Sacred Potlatch Collection. Since then, we have hosted thousands of visitors who come to learn our traditions and hear our stories. We hope that you will join us.

Sacred Salmon Ceremony

Saturday, June 18, 2016

Village of Cape Mudge

The salmon has sustained our communities since time immemorial, their importance woven into our history and stories and their image reflected throughout our carvings and artwork. We honour their importance by acknowledging their arrival and offering our gratitude for the sacrifice they make to nourish us.
In doing so, we pay respect to our ancestors who ensured through their spiritual connections to the harvest, that our peoples would survive now and for generations to follow.
