Chief and Council Welcome Everyone to the Kamloopa Powwow

Posted on: July 29, 2022

After a two year absence, Tk̓emlúps te Secwépemc (TteS), is honoured to be the host community for the 41st Annual Kamloopa Pow Wow on July 29 to 31, 2022 here on our beautiful and direct ancestral lands.

We welcome all our members and guests to come and participate in the Pow Wow events or witness and enjoy the celebration of the rich and vibrant culture from across Turtle Island.

This is a cultural event, and as such, it is anticipated that everyone will ensure that they act in a respectful, courteous and appropriate manner. Extra security has been hired to ensure that this important event remains safe for all those that attend.

With this extreme heat, we are asking attendees to take extra care in looking after yourselves. For those that need a break from the heat, there is a Cooling Centre located in the Sandman Centre, downtown Kamloops, which is open daily from noon to 8pm.

For the health of everyone attending, if you are not feeling well or are showing any COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home.

During Kamloopa, the sacred site (the location of the Le Estcwicwéý or the missing children) is not open to the public and we request that all be respectful of the Monument by the residential school.

Again, we welcome you to Tk̓emlúps te Secwépemc and hope you enjoy Kamloopa. Let’s come together safely in celebration.

Yours truly,
Tk̓emlúps te Secwépemc
