Tech-to-TEK Mentorship and Education Initiative

Resource Description: 

The Penticton Indian Band Natural Resource Department has grown rapidly and now undertakes numerous projects throughout syilx Territory. We are a relatively new department, just recently celebrating our second year of operation and are thankful to the NRT for their support in the past. We now have 25 staff who have undertaken numerous western - styled technical training and certifications, but they have not received focused traditional training from Elders and Knowledge Keepers. The blending of west ern training and TEK greatly enhances the utility of both paradigms.
