History is in the detail

The sheer beauty of Aboriginal artwork takes you to a time in history when the Pacific Ocean and old growth Cedar, Spruce, Hemlock and Fir dominated the horizon, and European settlements were generations away. The talents of Aboriginal artists have been passed down from generations to generation with the sole purpose of passing on wisdom and history; to preserve traditions and culture. The stories, lessons and meanings behind each piece of artwork is breathtaking and remarkable. As you enjoy the notes of local wines and savour the flavours of Aboriginal-inspired tapa’s, created by Executive Chef Shirley Lang from the Cree Nation, these stories will come to life, entice your imagination and deepen your appreciation of history.
