• In the lush Pemberton Valley north of Vancouver is the old First Nations community of Mount Currie, the busy heart of the Mount Currie Reserve of the Lil’wat group of the Stl’atl’lmx Nation with a population of 1,400 persons.

    Salish First Nations people were the first to call this area their home when they settled at the foot of majestic Mount Currie and the head of Lillooet Lake. This is the traditional territory of the Lil’wat Nation, who today are headquartered in Mount Currie and D’Arcy, with smaller communities sprinkled along Lillooet Lake.

    Although Whistler is located within the boundaries of the Lil’wat Nation’s traditional territory, Mount Currie is a world away from the multi-million-dollar homes, exclusive restaurants and the star appeal of the renowned ski resort.
