The 7 Celebrations Indigenous Showcase event brings people from all walks of life together, through an evening of Indigenous storytelling, live performances, and film. This family-friendly event will be held on February 3, 2023 at 5:30pm with doors opening at 5:00pm at the NATC Theatre.

A suggested donation of $7 will go towards fundraising for the completion of the film ‘Coming Home For the Children.’ With that donation, you’ll receive an Indigenous Social Media Calendar from Shop First Nations.

An artisan market will be open before and after the event for attendees to browse Indigenous products and food. For more detail about the Indigenous Showcase click on the link here

Silver Star mountain’s history reaches back centuries to include Indigenous use as a summer ground for hunting and berry picking.

7 Celebrations was named after the 7 Affirmations for 7 Generations Thompson Okanagan Pledge that was inspired by Indigenous philosophy that the actions we make today will have a lasting impact for 7 generations to come. We will celebrate the traditions, stories, and cultures of the region’s communities so they can live on for years to come.
