  • My wife and I were greeted by a knowledgeable host who was pleased to share information with us. The Centre is well laid out and provides a good half day immersion.  more »
  • We drove down from Kelowna and made a few stops along the way. By the time we arrived; it was a bit late to visit the site and do the walk. Disappointed. Better plan ahead next time.  more »
  • This is a beautiful place showcasing local indigenous culture. The seeing is spectacular and the building is beautiful. They have this and other activities at set times, though that may be seasonal. We only had a short amount of time because we arrived late. It is definitely worth a visit though, but arrive earlier to take full advantage, especially if they have events or yours going on. I believe when we were there they were offering guided tours and some kind of snakes thing! (There are snakes in the area including rattle snakes.).
  • We visited in between hockey games in March, 2019. The centre's story video in the recreated pit house captured our youngest's attention for the duration. I found the map outside with only Syilx'tsn names impactful; I imagine this is what indigenous people felt/feel like looking at a settler's map of their territory, but not recognising the language. My favourite part was my discussion with Derek; so invigorating and giving of his time and opinion. Thank you Derek for making me think, and reminding me to keep questioning. Well done!
