History

For the last 20 years the Adams Lake Indian Band (ALIB) Title & Rights (T&R) Department has been collecting materials which support the preservation of their culture and territorial rights on their seven reserves and throughout their territory. These include materials relating to economic development and lands management, the shared territory of the Lakes Secwepemc (Pespeséllkwe), and Secwépemcul’ecw (Shuswap Territory). These materials are collected to sustain the culture of ALIB, and its members (Cstélnec), as well as Secwépemc culture in general, which has been ongoing in Interior BC for at least the last 9,500 years.

The Archives acquires, preserves and provides access to archival and documentary materials relevant to the cultural heritage of Adams Lake Indian Band (ALIB) Territory or Area of Interest (AOI). The archival collections may include original papers, drawings, photographs, maps, audio, film and video recordings. The Archives maintains a library of subjects related to the history, literature and natural sciences of ALIB territory, from online, published and grey literature sources. Highlights of some of the collection's archival categories include: papers belonging to community members, field notebooks, fieldwork photographs and records (primarily digital), archival records associated with the territory (maps) and oral histories of ALIB community members. The artifact repository manages pre-contact material culture of Cstélnec, found on reserve and throughout Secwepemcul'ecw.
