"n'awqen" ~ En'owkin
The word En'owkin is an Okanagan conceptual metaphor which describes a process of clarification, conflict resolution and group commitment. With a focus on coming to the best solutions possible through respectful dialogue, literally through consensus
The En'owkin is a dynamic institution, which puts into practice the principles of self-determination and the validation of cultural aspirations and identity.
The En'owkin Centre and ECOmmunity Place (ECOmmunity) in Penticton are helping to preserve and protect the Indigenous plants, wildlife, culture and spirituality found on the land. It brings together lands & learning, conservation & culture on a 100- hectare site located on the West side of the Okanagan River Floodplain.
Guided interpretive programs provide schools with the educational programs that incorporate curriculum projects which use studies, cultural arts, story telling and Indigenous drama; thus raising visitor awareness around environmental values and the Syilx culture.
Located in Syilx territory on the Penticton Indian Reserve in British Columbia, Theytus Books is proudly First Nations-owned and operated in partnership with the En'owkin Centre.
