About Us

In 1982, the 17 Secwepemc Bands representing the Secwepemc Nation signed a declaration to work in unity to preserve, record, perpetuate and enhance Secwepemc language, history and culture.

The Secwepemc Cultural Education Society was formed with a mandate to assist the Secwepemc people and bands to preserve, record, perpetuate, and enhance the Secwepemc language, history, and culture.

Aim of this Website:
Through the sharing of information about Secwepemc First Nations, we can create awareness for all people and promote understanding and respect. To create a vibrant and interactive website while keeping in touch with Secwepemc traditions and cultural practices.
