My name is Coralee Miller, I am a member of Westbank First Nation and I am a syilx/Okanagan Woman. I work full time as a docent at the Sncewips heritage museum where my duties include providing tours, consultation and providing interpretation of syilx/Okanagan culture and heritage. I work as an informational guide and enjoy sharing my culture and history through the syilx/Okanagan perspective. I am passionate about my work and culture and I am always happy to offer my assistance in any way that I can. When I am not working I love to make art through sculpting, painting and digital media. I love to express myself and my culture through art and storytelling. Limlimt
