Aboriginal Culture

British Columbia is a vast, beautiful landscape that has known the footsteps of Aboriginal people from time immemorial. The Aboriginal Tourism Association of BC offers many ways to discover Aboriginal culture throughout British Columbia. See Canadian First Nation artists carving a totem pole, explore traditional lands and waters with an Aboriginal guide, or enjoy and experience Aboriginal dance and music performances and many Aboriginal Pow Wows & festivals throughout the year.

Audrey loves to create stone carvings of bears, faces, wild animals, and spiritual native themes. She sees an image in the stone and releases it.

“I love the feel of the stone and I go into a trance. When I see an image in the stone I can not stop until I see the master piece finished to perfection”

Audrey's sculpture works are primarily in Soapstone, Serpentine, and Marble.

At one time the Secwepemc people occupied one large Traditional territory covering approximately 145,000 square kilometers. In 1811, after European contact, the colonial government divided the Secwepemc people into 17 distinct groups with specific parcels of land designated to each.

Visit the Secwepemc Museum and Heritage Park and experience the rich cultural history of the Secwepemc People. Attractive museum exhibits incorporate the oral history and legends of the Secwepemc People along with historical photographs, illustrations and artefacts. Outdoor cultural displays in the 12-acre Native Heritage Park on the banks of the South Thompson River are a natural complement to the Museum. More than a kilometer of trails lead visitors through the archaeological remains of a 2000-year old Secwepemc winter village site, four reconstructed winter pit houses and a summer village.
