About this event

In March 2023, visitors can experience Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation food, art, song and dance through this new limited event series entitled naaʔuu.

naaʔuu is a cultural experience presented by Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation, supporting Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks work in restoring and furthering the nation’s lands, language and culture.

Held at the Tla-o-qui-aht-owned Best Western Plus Tin Wis Resort in Tofino, ticket-holders are invited to gather inside the resort’s conference centre which has been transformed to look and feel like a traditional longhouse.

Throughout this three-hour event, experience cultural presentations depicting the Nation’s history through song, dance, and traditional carvings coming to life over a delicious dinner.

Buy your tickets now for this limited March event series run.

March 9, 15, 16 , 18 & 23, 2023 - each night 6 to 9pm.

Witness specially carved masks and signature regalia as interpreters share transformative teachings at naaʔuu.

The event is produced by Hjalmer Wenstob, a renowned Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation artist and owner of the Cedar House Gallery, alongside a team of community members.

Tickets are limited and non-refundable, with the event being appropriate for ages 12 and up. The Pacific Rim Whale Festival is March 17 - 25, 2023, which is running in collaborating with naaʔuu.
