Community Events

Ceremony has always been an integral aspect of Secwepemc culture. Ceremonies were linked to the valued traditions of the family and its relationship to the land and the environment. Each community celebrated these relationships in their own way with many additional gatherings of neighbouring communities. Ceremonies were held throughout the year and most involved food, song and dance. Two common ceremonies were held in spring and the fall with the coming of the first berries and the arrival of the salmon.
