syilx plants & animals guide


Available on backorder

Working with syilx apprentice knowledge keeper, Krystal Withakay (spaxwawlm), the Regional District of Central Okanagan (RDCO) Parks Services produced this guide Central Okanagan: Guide to Common Plants and Animals (suqinaq̓inxʷ tmxʷulaxʷ : tmíxʷ uł yayat əts p̓lal), in English and nsyilxcən (where possible). Nsyilxcən is the language spoken by syilx Okanagan people.

This guide covers the territory of the the traditional, ancestral, and unceded tm̓xʷúlaʔxʷ (land) of the syilx / Okanagan people who have resided here since time immemorial. It is laminated to make it weatherproof and is printed on 100% recycled paper. To help with language pronunciation, you can use the guide on this page.

$1 from every guide is directed to the Syilx Language House, and any remaining proceeds go back to supporting non-profit outdoor learning initiatives.

We also offer a number of other Indigenous Learning Resources that are made available on the recommendation of Indigenous advisors and partners, and through Indigenous organizations, authors and creators.

You are welcome to include other items in your order, and we can ship everything out together when these guides arrive to save you $$ on shipping. Or you can put in two separate orders – one for these guides, and a second for other resources, and we will ship separately.

Please note that the image shown here is a draft, and the final version may look slightly different.
