The Northern Rockies offers plenty of opportunities to experience the region's vibrant artistic landscape and rich cultural history. Experience northern heritage in today's landscape, where old traditions mix with the modern way of life.

Indigenous Culture and History

Northeast British Columbia is home to several Indigenous communities. In recognizing the region's vibrant heritage, the Municipality acknowledges the ancestral and traditional territory of the many First Nations and Métis people whose footsteps have marked these lands on which we collectively live, work and enjoy.

We are grateful for the traditional knowledge-keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We recognize the land as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or visit.
