Featuring stunning photographs & glimpses into rich Esk'etemc heritage, this photobook commemorates the historic event of May 8, 2017. On this day, the Esk'etemc of the Secwepemc nation declared title and rights over Esk'etemculucw, the traditional territory and lands inhabited by their ancestors for thousands of years. It was a day of celebration and ceremony for the community. All Photography by Casey Bennett.

Tonight at Esk'et's planning meeting it was announced that artisans can set up booths to sell their crafts and homemade items at the Esk'et Arbor during the Secwepemc Summer Gathering on August 24th-26th.

I know we have a lot of talent in our community, I hope to see a lot of it on display throughout the gathering!!

There is no table rental fee, but the committee does request an item per day be donated for their door prizes draws.

Please don't forget to bring your cash to make purchases to support our Secwepemc artists!!!
