Every year the Okanagan Nation Alliance (ONA) has a Nation community member create an original design to represent the annual Okanagan Nation Salmon Feast.

As Coralee states ” I am of mixed heritage, but have grown up as Syilx Okanagan in my community of Westbank. I love art and am working to better myself as an artist by attending UBCO. My favourite mediums are sculpture, painting and drawing, as well as the occasional digital work.  I work as a museum asssistant at the Sncewips Heritage Museum and I love it as it is the one job that gives me a chance to contribute my artistic skills to the space. I love meeting new people and sharing my culture through art and through the oral stories that I hold dear.”
