Simpcw First Nation – People of the North Thompson River

The Simpcw are a division of the Secwepemc, or Shuswap, whose traditional territory encompasses approximately 5,000,000 Ha in the North Thompson region.

The Simpcw people speak the western dialect of Secwepemctsin (the language of the Secwepemc or Shuswap people) and have been passed down from generation to generation. Secwepemctsin is in the Interior Salish language family.
