The Work

The commissioning of this life size sculpture by Westbank First Nation, located along Kelowna’s waterfront, is envisioned as a learning opportunity through the sharing of cultures between these two neighbouring communities. The creation of a monument to Chief Sw'kn'cut is a way to acknowledge the role this historic figure played in promoting cooperation and communication between the Sylix people and early European settlers.
