Syilx Okanagan Water Forum


The Syilx Okanagan Water Forum is taking place on World Water Day, Friday, March 22, 2019. This is a follow up from Forward Thinking: Syilx Knowledge Informing Watershed Planning Forum’s major commitments of the need to gather out on the land, asserting our responsibility for siwɬkʷ and “collaboration, higher consciousness, being open to opportunities”.

Registration is free for Syilx community and $150 for all other participants.

The Okanagan Nation Alliance (ONA) is hosting this experiential event for Syilx citizens, knowledge holders, other governments, and water colleagues and leaders. This Forum will provide an opportunity to learn, connect with each other out on the land, share perspectives, build a collective water consciousness, and engage in dialogue on drinking water protection, wetlands, and other important issues.

More details to come.
