We originally went for the Spirit Train and we enjoyed the wonderful performance by the dancers! We were given a schedule of events so we decided to go on the cultural tour which was led by Christine and turned out to be very informational - she was very indepth and knowledgeable, the path she brought us thru was very short...

A couple of years ago we took our then 5 year old Granddaughter to the village (2012 I think) and we all had a great time there. The little train was a major highlight and the story of the Sasquatch was well done. There was a wonderful carver in one of the tents who had our little girl enthralled. This... More

My daughters (3 and 7 years old) and I, spent a fabulous day at Klahowya Village this summer. We took part in a fantastic walking tour, ate a delicious lunch of salmon on bannock, rode the train, and watched an incredible performance of music and dance. My girls were engaged the whole time and couldn't wait to tell their dad... More

Klahowya Village has become an annual tradition for our family. We always look forward to visiting when we travel to Vancouver. The story train is the big attraction for our young children. They love hearing about Princess Klahowya, Raven, Sasquatch . . . whoever the story happens to be about that year. These characters have become a beloved part of... More

We had a terrific experience at the Klahowya Village. Our children learned so much about the native peoples. Thank you for the beautiful music, dancing, crafts and the kind and friendly people. Dancing Fire Wolf Designs booth had unique and handmade crafts. The owners are gracious, knowledgeable and kind.

We had a great time at the Klahowya Village. We originally went to ride the miniature train (which is still good fun at $5 per person), but discovered all sorts of interesting things in the village (free entry). There are several artisans, who are all happy to share and discuss their work. We also had the opportunity to participate in... More

We had an amazing time at the Klahowya Village in Stanely Park. The entry is free where you'll be able to catch some performances and maybe even pop into a group for some story telling.

I really enjoyed wandering around, looking at the handcrafts and being able to speak with the artisans about their love for their culture and willingness to share it, so we might understand. Thanks!

We went to see the weaving workshop and had a fairly long talk with Attijup (Christine). She is a very knowledgeable and very interesting person. She taught us a lot about her tribe and other Native tribes. Great visit. I can't say much about the rest of the place as we went through it very quickly.
