We would like to acknowledge that we are on the unceded traditional territory of the Secwepemc First Nations
Please note that this map includes names of Secwepemc communities that may not be used anymore. For proper names of nations and pronunciation, go to Shuswap Nation Tribal Council.
In SD #83, we have a local education agreement with 4 Secwepemc nations:
• Adams Lake
• Little Shuswap Lake
Acknowledging territory is a way to show honour and respect to the First Nations whom have lived on the land since time immemorial. There are many different instances where acknowledging territory is appropriate. Read the document Acknowledging Territory.
