Bien avant le débarquement de James Cook sur la côte ouest de l'île de Vancouver en 1778, les aborigènes habitaient la région et son histoire se perpétue dans de nombreuses expériences aborigènes. Les Salishes côtiers, la Tribu Nuu-chah-Nulth et Kwakwakawa'wakw ont vécu dans des villages permanents, sur les rives et les vallées de l'île, créant des formes d'art élaborées au fil des siècles.

Les visiteurs explorant la culture aborigène de l'île de Vancouver peuvent s'attendre à goûter des aliments traditionnels, faire une visite guidée, voir des totems, visiter des galeries d'art et des musées, regarder des cérémonies, et parcourir à pied ou en canoë des routes historiques utilisées pendant des milliers d'années par les premiers résidents de l'île.

La culture aborigène est tellement riche ici que le lieu a été choisi pour les Jeux autochtones de l'Amérique du Nord 2008. Les jeux ont accueilli plus de 4 500 athlètes canadiens et américains et plus de 3 000 artistes de la scène. L'île de Vancouver est peut-être la zone la plus accessible pour vivre des expériences aborigènes ; les visiteurs ne sont jamais loin de la culture des Premières nations.
