A celebration of native
culture by Coast Salish artist
Richard Krentz, kwdta'm-us

Since ancient times the First Peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast have gathered to celebrate in song, dance, food and unity. These gatherings were held in a common meeting area, referred to as the Long House or "Feast House". Now you can experience this tradition on Grouse Mountain surrounded by spectacular vistas of sea and mountains all overlooking the city of Vancouver.

On entering the hiwus feasthouse, you will be awestruck by its natural beauty. With its hand-split red cedar planks stretching from floor to ceiling, full round hand-hewn cedar logs and carved totem poles supporting the main building and its huge fire pit in the center of the feasthouse.

Guests can enjoy a one and a half hour sunset program, combining traditional song and dance with a light dinner of traditional native foods. Or, a full evening presentation that promises a two hour expanded program of song, dance, and food including fresh vegetables together with dressing held in a clam shell, bannock, salmon prepared in various fashions and presented on wooden plates, steamed clams served in an authentic bent comer box, and a specially prepared dessert all served in a traditional manner. In honor of witnessing these celebrations, guests will be individually presented with an authentic native gift of friendship.

Afterwards, shop the native artwork and carvings exclusive to the hiwus feasthouse by Coast Salish Native artist Richard Krentz.
