In the Thompson Okanagan, we are lucky enough to live in an incredible place that is composed of diverse communities and cultures. Here, we believe in sharing what we love about this region with each other and our visitors. Now that travel and the ability to reconnect are possible, you are invited to the 7 Celebrations events to reconnect throughout the communities of the Thompson Okanagan.
7 Celebrations was named after the 7 Affirmations for 7 Generations Thompson Okanagan Pledge that was inspired by Indigenous philosophy that the actions we make today will have a lasting impact for 7 generations to come. We will celebrate the traditions, stories, and cultures of the region’s communities so they can live on for years to come.
Reconnecting in the Shuswap
Celebrate culture and tradition in the Shuswap as 100 km of the region come together to host a series of events in the North Shuswap, Sicamous, and Salmon Arm. This series of events will feature cultural performances, Indigenous story tellers, local and Indigenous artisans, and a continued theme of welcoming the Sockeye Salmon home through the Uninterrupted Virtual Reality experience narrated by Dr. Mary Thomas.
