In 1986, the shishalh Nation became the first self-governing indigenous community in Canada. The administrative and educational centre, along with the Raven’s Cry Theatre, Tems Swiya Museum, and Tsain-Ko gift shop, is located on the west (“water”) side of Highway 101, across from the Tsain-Ko Centre within walking distance to downtown Sechelt.

A 40 minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay and 27km/17mi drive along the Highway 101, you’ll find the charming seaside town of ch’atlich (Sechelt) – residing on unceded shishalh territory and situated on an isthmus between the Sechelt inlet and the Salish Sea. The town serves as a central point for exploring the Sunshine Coast and sightseeing through the neighbouring communities of Halfmoon Bay, Roberts Creek, Pender Harbour and Egmont.
