Discover the natural and cultural heritage of Prince Rupert and the Northwest Coast with a visit to the Museum of Northern British Columbia where you'll learn about the significance of the Feast, integral to the governing structure, culture and spiritual traditions of various First Nations. Witness ceremonial regalia worn by the chiefs in the Feast, great Feast dishes, spoons delicately carved out of mountain goat horn, and bent cedar boxes, painted with complex chiefly designs, to be filled with gifts for the guests. A narrated slide show in the museum's media room offers exquisite images of the coastal landscape and a look at the intimate relationship between Northwest Coast peoples and their environment. Enjoy a short walk to the Tsimshian Longhouse and be delighted at the memorable performance of the Gwis'amiilgigohl Dancers in full ceremonial regalia as they dramatize the Feast performance with ancient stories told by the chief.

Special Notes:

Participants will walk along paved sidewalk approximately 800 feet with a mild-to-moderate uphill incline to the museum. There is no food served on this excursion.
