Whale in the Door: A Community Unites to Protect the Howe Sound // Pauline Le Bel
For thousands of years, Howe Sound, an inlet in the Salish Sea provided abundant food, shelter, and stories, for the Squamish Nation. After a century of contamination from resource extraction, the Sound contained many biologically dead zones. But major efforts by the Squamish Nation, governments, and industry has produced dramatic returns of flora and fauna. Whale in the Door invites readers into a story of biological resilience as a community struggles to shape a vision for its future.





Illumination of Chaudière Falls

October 6 – November 5

Mìwàte is surpassing expectations in terms of attendance. Please expect 15-20 minutes to start the experience during peak periods. We recommend seeing it on off-peak times, such as week nights.

Discover one of our most important landmarks and immerse yourself in First Nations culture through a vivid display of colourful lights that will elevate the natural beauty of the magnificent Chaudière Falls.

In fall 2017, a dynamic lighting display will illuminate the falls. Accompanied by a rich soundscape, the experience will evoke the culture of Indigenous people and in particular the Algonquin heritage of the region. In addition to the illumination, interpretation panels will share the story of the presence of Indigenous peoples in the region.

The name Mìwàte means “dazzled by a light or fire” in Anishinaabe, the language of the Algonquin people. Light will be used to amplify the energy that comes from the water.
