Pendleton blankets on loan from the Westbank First Nation Sncəwips Heritage Museum

The Kelowna Library is building collaborative ties with the newly opened Westbank First Nation Sncəwips Heritage Museum. In support of events hosted by the campus Aboriginal Services Centre during National Aboriginal Month (e.g. Idle No More Teach-In), the Library is featuring a collection of resources on aboriginal issues.

The display significantly celebrates the syilx/Okanagan nation and promotes this new local museum. The Museum has loaned unique Pendleton blankets (pictured) which reflect imagery central to the cultural heritage of the WFN.
