Kelowna Farmers’ and Crafters’ Market – Winter

Kelowna / Nor-kwa-stin

Nor-kwa-stin - Kelowna is a Secwepemctsín derived word. Its name comes from the story of August Gillard, an early settler who crawled from an underground shelter just as a group of First Nation people passed by. The local people called out, “Kim-ach-touch”, meaning Brown Bear. Over time, this became Kelowna, meaning Grizzly Bear, which was easier for colonizers to pronounce. The Secwepemc name for the area around Kelowna was Nor-kwa-stin, "hard black rock", relating to the rocks used for sharpening flints for arrowheads.
