KAMLOOPS - The Thompson- Nicola Regional District Library System is hosting an Introdution to Secwepemc Ethnobotany led by Carryl Armstrong of the Secwepemc Museum and Heritage Park, Wednesday, Oct. 21, 7 p.m., at the Kamloops Library.

Armstrong studied archaeology at Simon Fraser University and has worked as both archivist and archaeologist for T’Kemlups te Secwepemc and Neskonlith Indian Band.

Secwepemc people relied heavily on plants for food, medicine, tools and implements. In addition, plants and plant knowledge to promote both physical and spiritual well-being are an integral part of Secwepemc medicine.

Armstrong will be bringing some plants to the library for a hands-on experience.

This event is free, but registration is recommended. To reserve your seat contact the Kamloops Library, 250-372-5145.
