Luncheon: Spo7ez Tl'a7áshn
The Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre (SLCC) presents Spo7ez Tl'a7áshn - a four course plated lunch enriched by cultural performances in our Istken Hall. SLCC Chef Felix Breault’s menu, inspired by the change of seasons and traditional songs from Squamish Nation and Lil'wat Nation, will be paired with Indigenous World Wines. Guests can expect to taste the influences of songs such as Tl’ni Slulum/ Deer Song from Squamish, and Cuystwi malh Skalula7/Berry Picking Song from Lil’wat. Dressed in regalia, the SLCC’s Cultural Performance team will share the song aligned with each course through singing, drumming, and dancing. The lunch will start with a feast blessing by the Cultural Ambassadors and be completed with the sharing of a farewell song. Tables will be mindfully spaced out to practice physical distancing and allow dancers to move freely, all while maintaining an intimate dining experience.
