Canoe Cultures

The Canoe Cultures Society is an Indigenous-led non-profit society dedicated to the art and culture of the Canoe. Come to see live demonstrations of traditional Canoe carving techniques as young Indigenous carvers demonstrate their skills on a new canoe and display completed canoes. Also learn how Indigenous peoples preserved their Salmon at the fish-drying rack and explore the traditional Indigenous arts and crafts at our Indigenous Artists demo.

The Canoe Cultures Performance Stage features a number of cultural performances from Tsatsu Stalqayu, which translated into English mean Coastal Wolf Pack. A traditional Salish song and dance group, the group consists of over 25 male and female members of a single family, ranging in age from six months to 50 years old. Their variation in age and gender allows for more song and stories to be shared on stage. The members of this group represent the following Coast Salish communities: Musqueam, Squamish, Tsartlip, Nanaimo and more. The Coastal Wolfpack performers will be performing every Friday – Sunday of the Fair and Monday Sept 4 from 1pm to 5pm on The Canoe Cultures Performance Stage.

Challenger Map

The Challenger Map, also known as the BC Relief Map, was a beloved PNE attraction for decades, enjoyed by millions of visitors from 1954 until 1997. Measuring over 6,000 square feet – the size of two tennis courts, it was constructed out of almost one million pieces of jig-sawed, layered, and hand painted 1/4″ Douglas Fir plywood. The map was retired when the BC Pavilion building was deconstructed in the late 90s. Handcrafted with love by forestry mogul George Challenger and his family in the basement of their home, it was a gift to all British Columbians. Though it hasn’t been at the PNE for almost 25 years it is still one of the attractions that the PNE team gets asked about most often. We’re excited to have the Fraser Valley section of it back on display at this year’s PNE Fair, while we work towards restoring the entire map for a future exhibit.
