UBC Okanagan respectfully acknowledges the traditions and customs of the Syilx Okanagan people in whose territory the Okanagan Campus is situated.

You can see the connection to the Syilx Okanagan Nation on campus through our bilingual street signs which are written in both English and n’syilxcen, the Story Poles and the Okanagan Nation flag in the main campus courtyard, and the variety of events and programming provided throughout the year.

The Okanagan

Territory of Syilx Okanagan Nation, the Okanagan is a region in the province of British Columbia located along the Okanagan Lake.  The Okanagan region is full of fresh water lakes, rolling hills, grasslands, forests, and Canada’s only desert.

The Okanagan Nation Alliance officially welcomed UBC to the territory of the Syilx Okanagan Nation in 2005 with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding.
