About This Project

Dan Saul holds the Secwepemc Staff outside of the Secwepemc Museum


Land of the Shuswap a site containing Secwepemc Stories, Landmarks and Place Names is part of an ongoing mandate to preserve the Secwepemc Language and Culture.

The George Manuel Institute and the Neskonlith Indian Band's goal was to develop a School curriculum around the Secwepemc language, stories, songs dances landmarks and place names. We hope that this site will be an atlas of the Secwepemc Culture.

We would like at this time to express our sincere gratitude to the Canadian Culture On line program. Without their financial assistance this website would not have been created.

Many Thanks to those who gave of their time and energy to create the original site. Now as we revise the website we are reminding of how many persons gave so much time and energy to this project. Thank you to:
