Welcome to the Shuswap Band

Keepers of the Land

We are located in the East Kootenay region of British Columbia.

The First Nations people have always been keepers of the land, using its bounty to sustain their way of life.

Native culture hinges on the belief that the land responds positively to care and respect.

Those who nurture the land will receive back from it ten-fold. The vision of Eagle Ranch was born out of this intrinsic cultural belief.
