A First Nations heritage site and village, Tuckkwiowhum (Tuck-we-ohm) is located 5 km south of Boston Bar. The area was given its name by local First Nations people, known as a “great berry picking place”. The rolling hills still boast lush forests with wild huckleberries, blueberries and medicinal plants.
Tuckkwiowhum Heritage Village was inspired by local First Nations desire to preserve and share the deep spiritual connection to the land and the teachings of the Nlaka’pamux people. The site offers guests an opportunity to experience the Nlaka’pamux (Ing-la-kap-ma) village lifestyle before the arrival of European culture, including a subterranean pit house, summer lodges, smoke house and replicas of actual pictographs found in Nlaka’pamux territory. Whether you’re looking for a peaceful weekend getaway, a quick stop on the way through the canyon, or to immerse yourself in our rich lifestyle and culture, you’ll find what you’re looking for at Tuckkwiowhum.
