Okanagan Indians


These people are a mixture of Anishinabe and Salish. Anishinabe soldiers forced their way into what is now British Columbia and Washington around 1,000 to 1,300 years ago, after becoming aware of the Seven Fires Prophecy, and subdued the Indians of that region. By the late 17th century, they had their first contact with the white invaders and experienced the first use of plague warfare by the evil white race. By the 1840s, the whites were invading British Columbia and Washington and it set off an Anishinabe-Salishan War to defend their land against the white invaders. White leaders obviously launched massive plague warfare assaults on the Indians of British Columbia and Washington which decimated Indian populations. With the Indian population greatly decimated (as many as 9 out of 10 Indians were killed during the plague warfare assaults) the whites were easily capable (they had the revolver and machine gun by the 1860s) of defeating the brave Anishinabe-Salishan soldiers. These wars were initiated in the late 1840s and continued on until around 1870 in British Columbia. The Okanagan Indians are the following: Colville; Lower Similkameen; Okanagan Indian Band; Osoyoos; Penticton; Upper Nicola; Upper Similkameen; and Westbank. Below is a list of the groups that make up the Okanagan Indians who are a mixture of Anishinabe and Salish, and photographs of their lands.





From doing research i have learned that the Anishinabe people of British Columbia and Washington did reach treaty agreements with the whites but never ceded their land to the whites. Maybe non Anishinabe Indians ceded Anishinabe land to the whites but that was a clear violation of the treaies the Anishinabe Nation reached with the whites. It was the Anishinabe Nation which owned that land by right of conquest. After 1870, the Anishinabe people and the Salishans settled down on Reserved land in British Columbia and Washington. In Washington, the Anishinabek and Salishans settled on the Colville-Spokane Reservation and the Yakima Reservation. In British Columbia they settled in seven different locations. Below is a list of where these Anishinabe-Salishan people live at.
