Who we are

What it means to be Kelowna Made

Kelowna is made of nature, heritage, and culture. It is made of sport, art, music, agriculture, food and drink. Kelowna is made of a valuable Indigenous tradition. Together, we make Kelowna.

This is what it means to be Kelowna Made.

As residents of Kelowna, we are appreciative guests of the syilx peoples. Our city, and this festival, are on their unceded, traditional and ancestral homelands.

The syilx culture is rich and vibrant. We are grateful for the opportunity to learn from the wisdom and experience of our syilx hosts while improving our relationship with tmixʷ and especially each other.

tmixʷ roughly translates to “all living things” and includes the land, water, animals, people, plants, and even spiritual connections. tmixʷ is the syilx understanding that humans have a sacred responsibility to protect all living things.
