Okanagan Relations: Culture, Heritage and the Relationship Between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Peoples


Jordan Coble, Sncəwips Heritage Museum
Culyer Page and Amanda Snyder, Kelowna Museums
Sharron J. Simpson, author of The Kelowna Story

In its recommendations for reconciling relations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Final Report identifies the need for education to “remedy the gaps in historical knowledge that perpetuate ignorance and racism.” This includes the role of “dialogue forums and public history institutions such as museums and archives” to build understanding and forge new relationships. Join us for a lively panel discussion about the role of historians and heritage museums in representing the Okanagan’s colonial history and the relation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
