Ten Thousand Years Young - The Secwepemc First Nation
The history of First Nations in the Shuswap goes back over 10,000 years.
The area is named after the Secwepemc, an important Salish nation that has always inhabited the BC interior. Come live this history. The stories of the Secwepemc people are woven together by their history, legends, water, animals, and land. To understand Secwepemc stories you must understand the journeys they have taken from generation to generation and how it has shaped their culture today.
Historically Indigenous people have always been taught to share their stories, land, animals, and culture. Come hear the legends and feel the spirit. Tour the traditional waters of the Secwepemc people on a canoe, learn the history from a local Knowledge Keeper with attention grabbing storytelling, stroll in the Neskonlith Meadows (a permit is required), enjoy bannock, salmon and other local traditions at Jack Sam’s Restaurant at Quaaout Lodge, or join in a local pow wow. Your journey to authentic Indigenous experiences in BC starts here.
