En’owkin Centre stages open house

The public is invited to celebrate the rich cultural event of the Okanagan Indian Educational Resources Society

The En’owkin Centre is hosting an open house Wednesday as part of their year-end student showcase and celebration.

The public is invited to celebrate the rich cultural event of the Okanagan Indian Educational Resources Society. En’owkin Centre is committed to Okanagan language revitalization and is also home to Canada’s only indigenous multi-disciplinary national arts training centre funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage.

“For the last 30 years, faculty and staff of the En’owkin Centre have provided students with strong cultural and academic foundations for success,” said Lauren Terbasket, education director.

“Many former En’owkin students have gone on to become national and internationally recognized writers, artists, educators and language speakers.”

The open house takes place at the centre on Green Mountain Road from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and will feature language cultural presentations, readings, films and art exhibitions.
