June 14 2022 Quail’s Gate Winery was the location of an unveiling ceremony for a sculpture, commemorating the creation of a special Okanagan film about Okanagan Lake and the European settlement of the valley .

The Lake / n’-ha-a-itk is a documentary film depicting the story of the original European settlers at the Quails’ Gate Estate Winery property and the Syilx / Okanagan peoples,as told through an old long forgotten opera.

Delphine Derickson and Heather Pawsney collaborated to bring the opera to life and create the subsequent film.

PWPA members, Taryn Skalbania, Dora Stewart, and Alex Morrison  were invited to attend the ceremony. As well, a local screening of the film took place the following week and PWPA members attended and met with the producers. Read more in the article below:
