The Sncewips Heritage Museum showcases all that the sqilxw people from this area have to offer. There are excellent opportunities for everyone to get involved through the Museum, and we encourage you to pay a visit and share your ideas and feedback.

Westbank First Nation has worked hard to ensure that there are laws, policies, and procedures in place to manage and maintain a heritage museum, ensuring that our heritage, and that of the greater Okanagan Nation, can be preserved for future generations.

Following best museum practice, we have a trained professional staff dedicated to collecting, preserving, restoring, and interpreting archival, art and artifact collections. As a professional heritage organization, we are also committed to the repatriation of syilx artefacts held by other museums.

The Sncewips Heritage Museum is the foundation for our own goals and aspirations that we hope to see within the community, and the nation. We are here to ensure that there is a protected place for our culture and heritage, with our main goal being to engage the public and represent sqilxw people from our perspective.
