Secwepemc Heritage Park, Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada 19

Description : The Secwepemc People, known by non-natives as the Shuswap, are a Nation of 17 bands occupying the south-central part of the Province of British Columbia, Canada. The ancestors of the Secwepemc people have lived in the interior of British Columbia for at least 10,000 years.

At the time of contact with Europeans in the late 18th century, the Secwepemc occupied a vast territory, extending from the Columbia River valley on the east slope of the Rocky Mountains to the Fraser River on the west and from the upper Fraser River in the north to the Arrow Lakes in the south. Traditional Shuswap territory covers approximately 145,000 square kilometres (56,000 square miles).

More than a kilometer of trails lead visitors through the archaeological remains of a 2000-year old Shuswap winter village site, four reconstructed winter pit houses and a summer village.
