“Klahowya” means “Welcome” in the Chinook trading language. An amalgam of Aboriginal, English and French, Chinook was spoken along the Pacific coast from northern California to southern Alaska. Klahowya is also the name used for a unique Aboriginal experience – Klahowya Village – that takes place in Vancouver’s Stanley Park each summer season.

Located on the shared territory of the MusqueamSquamish and Tsleil-WaututhNations, Klahowya Village is a collaborative effort to showcase British Columbia’s many available authentic Aboriginal culture experiences. Visitors and locals alike will find arts, crafts, storytelling, live music and dance and more.

This year, the elusive and mysterious Sasquatch – a mythical creature from West Coast Aboriginal legends and Sts’ailes First Nations stories – is the theme for the venue, and features in a magical puppet show and in a miniature train ride through Stanley Park’s lush temperate rainforest.
