Sea Wolf Tours to Visit U’Mista Cultural Centre
Until now, Sea Wolf Adventures of BC has generated its business by hauling freight and travellers to points throughout the Broughton Archipelago.
But now the company is expanding into cultural tourism programs. These offer opportunities to learn about the First Nations traditions and history in the area, with a tour of Alert Bay, home to the Kwakwaka’wakw people for several thousand years and to the famous U’Mista Cultural Centre. Pride of place at the centre goes to their potlatch collection, masks and other regalia confiscated after an illegal potlatch in 1921.
