Day of Sucwentwecw- April 7
2016 Theme: Identity Through Storytelling

In School District 73, Day of Sucwentwecw (acknowledging one another) is an initiative that recognizes the Secwepemc and Nlaka'pamux Nations, their traditional territories and histories.

The Day is marked by the hosting of assemblies in all district schools. Each school has the opportunity to invite an Elder or representative from the territory to be a part of their assembly. Schools in the Kamloops/Thompson will recognize and acknowledge the traditional territories of the Secwepemc while schools in Logan Lake will recognize and acknowledge the traditional territories of the Nlaka'pamux People.
