Join Indigenous Programs and Services on an interactive journey through the evolving relationship with the Host Nation (Okanagan Nation) and the unique programming offered at UBCO. Once this workshop is completed, join the Student Experience Office for an immersive tour of the Sncewips Heritage Museum and learn more about the Syilx Okanagan people. Learn about the land, traditional tools and dwellings, cultural practices, storytelling, the impact of colonization, and more! We will be taking the bus from campus to the west side to experience the tour in-person. Recommended for all new-to-UBC students.
