Ki?su?k kyukit. Good day and welcome! The Ktunaxa Interpretive Centre is where our people come together to give visitors a taste of our rich heritage, mythology and culture. Located in the Mission building, which was also once a former residential school, guests are encouraged to view the many historic artifacts, contemporary art, archival photographs and displays containing examples of traditional stone, bead, hide, wood and cloth work. Learn about the everyday life of the Ktunaxa, and discover the renowned horsemanship and canoe-making of our unique and resourceful people.
The Centre is operated by the Ktunaxa Nation Council.
Hear our Creation Story and discover the ways that we have moved, lived, and crafted on these lands for thousands of years. Learn from a Ktunaxa Elder or Knowledge Holder about the tough past of St. Eugene Mission and the residential schools across Canada through first-hand experience. Watch an emotional documentary containing the personal stories of Ktunaxa students who were forced to leave their families and attend the school. And listen to the inspiring story of how St. Eugene was rebuilt into a resort to benefit the community for years to come.
