“The salmon people are our relatives,” was the fundamental message for non-Indigenous participants at the start of the 2022 Nk’mip (Osoyoos Lake) Water Science Forum in Osoyoos last week. 

This year’s water forum took on a very ambitious aim to bridge traditional Indigenous approaches to water issues with Western scientific methods. 

Likely most of the nearly 140 attendees at the two-and-a-half-day event would agree that the substantial program saw a wealth of cultural and scientific information exchanged, friendships formed and cultural understanding greatly furthered.
