WELCOME TO THE SHUSWAP A beautiful four-season region and tradi­tional territory of the Secwepemc (Shuswap) Nation. Four bands call the region home — Adams Lake, Neskonlith, Little Shuswap Lake and Splatsin. Besides its ancient heritage, there are many factors that make the Shuswap an exceptional place to live in and visit. At the heart of the region is Shuswap Lake. With more than 1,000 kilometres of shoreline, it is a wonderland for those who enjoy fishing, swimming, houseboating and other outdoor activities. The diversity of the lake itself, with so much of its shoreline still in a natural, uninhabited state, is a rarity. Also exceptional is the region's great diversity of ecosystems; from dry ponderosa pine and bunchgrass landscapes

near Chase to the Interior rain forests of the Upper Adams and Seymour rivers, to the rich Shuswap and Salmon River farmlands. In some areas, the diversity can be a mere hundreds of metres apart. Not only do our forests draw people in with their beauty, they provide critical wildlife habitat and are an important economic resource. The Wildfire Branch of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Resource Operations understands the crackle, warmth and smell of a campfire add a magical ambiance to the camping experience. But these magnificent trees, many more than 100 years old can be quickly destroyed in a wildfire.  The decision to impose a campfire ban is not taken lightly, but forests dry out

very quickly in the summer heat — even if there have been heavy recent rains. Campfires must be no larger than a half-metre wide by a half-metre high and need to be situated in a metal or rock fire ring. Always have at least eight litres of water or a shovel on hand in case your fire escapes. When you’re finished, douse the fire with water, stir, repeat, then touch to make sure those ashes are cool. If you cannot put your hand in the ashes, the fire is not out. There are stiff penalties for those who cause abandon a campfire or cause a wildfire. So be careful and alert. To report a wildfire, call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on a cell phone.

THINGS TO DO

THINGS TO DO There are ample opportunities to spend quality time outdoors, camping, hiking or biking. A good mix of accommodations is also available for those who prefer to sleep indoors. And there’s lots to do for those who wish to shop, dine, visit attractions or simply enjoy the ambiance of our friendly Shuswap communities.

SATISFY YOUR SOUL There are several churches in the Shuswap. If your cathedral is in the great outdoors, there are many beautiful and peaceful places in which to pray, meditate or simply relax. Several bookstores offer a wide range of inspirational literature and music — along with a great selection of fun, summer reads.

SALUTE TO THE SOCKEYE

VACATION 2018 SHUSWAP 4

Come for the summer but make sure to return for one of nature's grandest spectacles in the fall. This is the dominant-run year for sockeye salmon returning to spawn in the Adams River and other Shuswap watercourses following an arduous 600-kilometre-plus trip from the Pacific Ocean. The greatest number of sockeye return to the Adams River in the North Shuswap, something the Adams River Salmon Society marks with the Salute to the Sockeye at Roderick Haig–Brown Park. The 2014 salute event celebrated the more than three million sockeye who returned to their spawning grounds. It also drew approximately 200,000 visitors from around the globe and some 20,000 area students.

Sockeye usually gather near the mouth of the Fraser River in late summer and arrive in the Shuswap from late September through early November. The 2018 dominant-run celebration will be held from Friday, Sept. 28 to Sunday, Oct. 21, beginning with a prayer and welcome by the Little Shuswap Indian Band on whose traditional territory the park sits. During the Salute to the Sockeye there will be onsite vendors, souvenir sales, artisan wares, cultural and other entertainment and a special school curriculum for registered school groups. Food concessions offer bannock, salmon, burgers, pizza and more, and potable water is available. The Salute to the Sockeye festival is open to visitors each day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. All vehicles must be offsite by 5 p.m. when gates are closed and locked. All visitors to the site are required to pay admission, which is used to cover the costs of operating the event and support the Legacy Fund, which provides funding

properties are still under long-term lease to the BC Ministry of Environment. The Adams River Recreation Area was renamed in 1978, to honour Haig–Brown, the noted British Columbian conservationist, author, fly-fisher, and magistrate. In 1991, Roderick Haig–Brown gained full status as a Class “A” park and BC Parks initiated the idea to establish a non-profit organization to assist in developing a concept plan for the park. The Adams River Salmon Society was incorporated on Feb. 22, 1994. It is run by a volunteer board of directors whose primary focus is to help organize and run the Salute to the Sockeye.

to community groups in the Shuswap for stewardship activities and to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for the visitors and the spawning salmon. In response to growing concern by the B.C. Parks Branch, which pressed for legal protection of Crown lands along the Adams River, in May 1975, a formal freeze on all private land development was proclaimed under the Environment and Land Use Act. In 1977 the Adams River Recreation Area was established and by1986, 46.9 hectares (116 acres) of land along the river was acquired and protected by the Nature Trust of British Columbia. These

In addition, the society helps to determine how best to utilize the proceeds from the salutes, including the event admission revenue, to fulfill its mandate to encourage and facilitate the education and conservation of the natural and cultural resources of Roderick Haig–Brown Park.

The Shuswap is well-connected to its Indigenous heritage, with many place names derived from First Nations words. Salmon has always been key to the Secwepemc and remains key to its identity now. Fortunately, the cultural heritage and language are enjoying a revival and are being shared in tourism attractions and events. There are several events showcasing Secwepemc culture this year. • Join our First Nations neighbours at 10 a.m. at Pierre's Point on June 21 for a daylong celebration of National Indigenous Day, hosted by the Adams Lake Band and supported by the Switzmalph Cultural Society, Neskonlith Indian Band, Shuswap Trail Alliance, WA:TER, Shuswap Children's Association, Salmon Arm Métis Association and others, with financial support from the Department of Canadian Heritage. • Talking Rock Resort and Quaaout Lodge is a popular vacation destination on the shores of Little Shuswap Lake. The name is derived from petroglyphs and pictograph rock drawings from First Nations history and many of these can still be seen on rock bluffs along lakes and rivers in the area. Owned and operated by the Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band, the lobby

of the lodge is in the style of a kekuli (traditional winter home) and the unique influence of the native culture is predominant in the many authentic native dishes served in the restaurant. National Indigenous Day will be celebrated at Quaaout Lodge in a funfilled event, with a variety of stations featuring cultural and recreational activities — canoe rides, flint knapping, drum-making workshops,  archery, storytelling in the winter home and in the outdoor theatre and face-painting. Meet birds of prey, courtesy of the British Columbia Wildlife Park in Kamloops. Traditional food will be served by the Quaaout Lodge chef using local ingredients. The celebration begins at 10 a.m. The Arts Council for the South Shuswap has collaborated with the Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band and Quaaout Lodge to assist with Indigenous Day celebrations and received a grant to bring music programming to the event with DJ Shub as the main feature. Mihi Rangay a Maori dancer and musician will also perform. • Another opportunity to learn about our First Nations neighbours' rich cultural heritage takes place June 30 to July 2 with the annual powwow at the Neskonlith Band Arbour, a few kilometres west of Chase. Sponsored by the Working Together Powwow Society, this celebration features traditional dancing, singing, crafts and food concessions. Enjoy a powwow breakfast Saturday morning and a big feast at 5 in the evening. Several vendors offer a variety of traditional native items including blankets, baskets, moccasins, mukluks, ribbon shirts, regalia, jewelry and souvenirs.

VACATION 2018 SHUSWAP

• As a result of  an innovative group called "Together Shuswap" established in 2010, elders from Salmon Arm's neighbouring Neskonlith and Splatsin communities have worked with the Shuswap District Arts Council to add their voices and experience to exhibitions and projects. The groups have helped build relationships between Indigenous artists and the settler community, and have dealt with reconciliation challenges in unique ways.  In this latest project, Neskonlith elder Louis Thomas proposed the creation of a legacy of stories and artwork that would tour classrooms in the local school district to teach children about Secwepemc culture. The project, called Slxlxaya (sel-leugh-huh-ay-a), which means "telling it  like it is," includes four Secwepemc legends and several contemporary stories told by Neskonlith and Splatsin storytellers.  Artwork inspired from these stories is being created by 10 local Aboriginal artists, including three youths. The artwork is a mix of contemporary and traditional styles, including wood carving, beadwork, anime, drawing and digital artwork. Each piece will be accompanied by an audio playback device so viewers can experience the story at the same time. The exhibition opens with a reception at 7 p.m. Friday, June 1 at the gallery and runs to Aug. 4.   "Sharing  Our Culture" presentations by Neskonlith elder  Gerry Thomas will be offered throughout the exhibition, after which the body of work will be available as a touring exhibition. This will be a legacy for the children of all nations, helping to preserve the stories and encourage understanding of the Secwepemc culture. The gallery also presents contemporary exhibitions in the historic building on the corner of Hudson Avenue and McLeod Street. From April 21 to May 26, it's “Fold and Unfold,” drawings and paintings by Amy Modahl; from Aug. 11 to Sept. 8, artist and talented musician Herald Nix presents an exhibition of oil-on-board landscapes titled “Scenery,” and from Sept. 15 to Nov. 10, a group of eight Shuswap art-

THINGS TO DO

"WITHOUT MUSIC, LIFE WOULD BE A MISTAKE" What German philosopher and composer Friedrich Nietzsche said in the 19th century remains true today. Fortunately for residents and visitors, the Shuswap is well and truly alive with music.

ROOTS & BLUES FESTIVAL For the past 26 years, the Roots & Blues Festival has turned the heat up on warm summer days, bringing people from around the region and across the world to play and listen to great roots and blues music. Produced by the non-profit Salmon Arm Folk Music Society Aug. 16 to 19, the goal of the organizers is to present excellent world-class, culturally diverse music and artistic experiences to enrich and build community," with an emphasis

on celebration and a multi-generational audience. Many festival fans are expressing their pleasure at the return of Michael Franti this year. Artistic director Peter North says Franti is one of the most-requested acts for a return visit. This year's fest of the best features more great talent — Monkeyjunk, 2018 Juno winner of the Blues Album of the Year, and Big Dave McLean, who was nominated in the same category. Other big names are Colin James, Harry Manx, The Family Stone, Cindy Church, Hannah Sanders and Ben Savage, Jimmy Dale Gilmore and Bill Kirchen, Sarah Jane Scouten, Kym Gouchie and Northern Sky. Also added to a growing list of excellent artists are spectacular Quebec octet, whose exuberant harmony of bows, keys, valves and mouths strikes a chord in music-lovers’ hearts, bringing pure joy to audiences in a quest of memorable evenings and festive occasions. Geoff Berner comes to the festival with a reputation for keeping an audience on its collective toes, as he combines a

feisty, pointed performance stance with engaging songs. North notes Canada's open-door immigration policies "continue to reap so many artistic rewards it's impossible to keep up with the gifts that come our way." Mbira Renaissance Band is an example of new Canadians who come straight from a musical source and are now working with young Canadian-born musicians who love African music. Originally from Senegal, David Thiaw, educator, master drummer, artist, composer, craftsman, and storyteller, brings his lifelong passion for African and world music. Known for being a festival that appeals to the whole family, the popular kids' amenities will be kicked a notch higher with a daily family friendly concert with Kelowna's rock band Oot n' Oots. You need never be hungry at the festival as there are so many food vendors serving a world of food choices, including vegan. And those who like to shop will find many intriguing options in the Artisan Market.

OUTDOOR CONCERTS

The NimbleFingers Bluegrass and Oldtime Music Festival on Aug. 25 wraps up two weeks of excellent workshops, drawing music-lovers to beautiful Sorrento Centre on Passchendaele Road. Many of the talented workshop instructors remain at the centre and host a great day of family music and fun. This year's lineup will be familiar to bluegrass and old-time music fans: The Special Consensus is a superb bluegrass outfit in a classic vein but with more than enough modern sensibilities to attract every ear in this now pleasantly fractionating genre. The Bucking Mules is a straight-shoot​ing string band that throw down some of the most exciting and engaging old-time music being made. Other performers include the Lonesome Ace Stringband from Toronto and the Canote Brothers, Seattle’s twin brother musicians playing old-time and swing music. The Greg Blake Band brings bluegrass and gospel from the hills of West Virginia to the mountains of Colorado, and Seattle-based Eli West offers folk and jazz. Nomad Jones is a hot and happening Western Canadian bluegrass outfit equally comfortable ripping on rollicking classics or serenading on sultry ballads. Also on the bill and no less exciting are Jenny Lester & Friends, RedGirl, Kayla and Matt Hotte, Miriam Sonstenes and Jeff Dill and Mark Simos and Friends.

The festival features great food vendors and artisans, including music paraphernalia, posters, beautiful handmade jewelry, NimbleFingers T-shirts, and more. A creative craft area is open to festival-goers of all ages and delicious produce grown at Sorrento Centre's organic farm is available for purchase. For more information, go to www.nimblefingers.ca.

TAKE IT OUTSIDE

TAKE IT OUTSIDE One of the questions tourists ask most often when they arrive in the Shuswap is where can they hike, walk their dogs or ride their bikes.

the old growth cedar and hemlock forest along the Eagle River, which includes a boardwalk, foot bridge, and a series of interpretive signs. • Also more difficult is the 7.4-km Hyde Mountain Lookout Trail that takes about 2.5 hours one way. The first 3.6 km are uphill, but don’t despair.

Also popular with bears, so make lots of noise. • For a quick and easy stroll to stretch your legs for 20 minutes, take the rough Kay Falls Trail that leads to the base of the falls. • Also more difficult is the Larch Hills Traverse popular with mountain bike riders and skiers. It offers 2-, 4-, 7.4and 38-km opportunities, including a one-hour hike from the visitor centre to the Sicamous Forest viewpoint. • The Malakwa Suspension Bridge spans the Eagle River and features a couple of pleasant and easy trail loops. • More skill and endurance is required for the Mara Mountain (Owlhead) Lookout Trail that is a full day, 8.2 km hike featuring rugged mountain bluffs, alpine meadows, spectacular views of Mabel and Shuswap lakes as well as the Monashee Mountains. • The North Fork Wild is a 21-hectare legacy conservation park adjacent to the Perry River. It features a network of natural trails and boardwalks and provides easy to more difficult hiking. • The Old Sicamous Highway Trail follows the old, historic highway for approx. six kilometres.

Snowblazers and Spa Hills. Many trails are groomed, providing a smooth ride to the alpine. Sledding season runs from November to May and offers areas that are fun for families and others that challenge the most experienced and thrill-seeking sledders. Day-use chalets are available in six of the areas. Sledding can be risky and mountain weather can very quickly turn deadly. Check with experienced local riders regarding snow and weather conditions, routes and potential hazards. If in doubt, or weather conditions are variable, stay on well-used trails and riding areas. Be sure to sign in at the chalets and let others know where you are going. For more information, go online to www.shuswaptourism.ca.

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING & SNOWSHOEING For those who prefer to enjoy our winter weather under their own steam, the Shuswap has hundreds of places in which to snowshoe or cross-country ski. Larch Hills, 20 km south of Salmon Arm on Highway 97B, is home to some of B.C.’s finest cross-country skiing. With 150 km of trails, including 50km of groomed trails, and 16km of snow shoe trails, there is no shortage of variety for the outdoor enthusiast. The Larch Hills Nordic Society
