Nk'Mip Desert Cultural Centre, Osyoos (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Aboriginal people have lived in the Thompson Okanagan region for thousands of years.
Ranging from the desert sands of Osoyoos to the fertile lands of the Okanagan Valley, the three First Nations of the region each have their own rich cultures and traditions.
Aboriginal and cultural experiences in the Okanagan include cultural centres such as Nk’Mip Desert Cultural Centre in Osoyoos and Secwepemc Museum and Heritage Park near Kamloops. Other experiences available here include overnight stays in a kekuli (underground pit house) at Historic Hat Creek Ranch.
Each year Kamloops hosts the three-day Kamloopa Powwow – the largest powwow in Western Canada – which celebrates Aboriginal culture and heritage through singing, dancing and storytelling.
