School Living History Program

Experience magnificent Northwest Coast masks as they come to life in our Kwakwaka’wakw ceremonial house.  The Lelooska Family shares the songs, dances, stories and masks which display the rights, crests, and privileges bestowed on them by the late Chief James Aul Sewide.  Chief Tsungani carries on the traditions of his brother the late Chief Lelooska, performing with other family members.

Space is limited, reserve early! Admission is $8.00 per person, adult or child.

We are currently SOLD OUT, however, new opportunities may arise, please complete this 2023 School Living History Program Interest Form. We will notify you if additional opportunities become available. 

School programs begin at 10:30 am and are approximately one hour in length.

Following the program, students will visit the Lelooska Museum which displays an extensive collection of Native Artifacts from North America.  They will have the opportunity to ask the Lelooska Family questions and learn the significance of many of the artifacts on display.

Due to several high-risk individuals in our community and for the health and safety of all, we will continue to limit group sizes and require masks to be worn by all visitors age 2 and older when inside the buildings. We are grateful for your understanding.
