Youth of the Squamish and Lil’wat First Nations will provide guests with an authentic, cultural experience through orations of the two territories working together, and the history and legends of both Nations will be told as the train travels northbound through Squamish and Whistler.

In honour of the new partnership, Rocky Mountaineer was recently called to witness a traditional blessing ceremony at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centrein Whistler. Rocky Mountaineer officials, partners and members of the Squamish and Lil’wat Nations were on hand to celebrate the completion of SLCC’s Cultural Journey Phase II, an ongoing program to increase Aboriginal culture within the corridor.
