Moccasin Trails Launches West Kelowna “Paddling Stories” Indigenous Cultural Tour

Moccasin Trails, an emerging Indigenous Tourism Company owned by TOTA Indigenous Specialist, Greg Hopf, and Board Chair, Frank Antoine, are launching a West Kelowna Cultural Tour.

After running successful canoe tours throughout the Shuswap, the 100% Indigenous-owned business is thrilled to be bringing a tour to the Central Okanagan. Moccasin Trails specializes in taking guests back to ancestral paths throughout the region on waterways or trails alongside a Traditional Knowledge Keeper to share stories and songs, giving guests a deeper understanding of First Nations culture.

The Paddling Stories [?uc’lm smymay] Indigenous Cultural Tour takes you on a canoe journey from Gellatly Nutfarm across Okanagan Lake with an opportunity to learn ancient Syilx stories, view pictographs, and take part in a traditional feeding of the water ceremony.

Following that, enjoy lunch at the Red Fox Club and indulge in the flavour of modern Indigenous cuisine before a tour and wine tasting at Indigenous World Winery.

The next two tours are happening September 18th and 25th. Contact Greg by email or at 250-718-0205.
