This report is provided by the Penticton Indian Band Natural Resources (PIBNR) Department as an initial step in the development and reinforcement of a positive, cooperative caretakership relationship between the Penticton Indian Band Natural Resources (PIBNR) and Ecosystems Section, BC Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development (FLNRORD). The report together with its long and short-term recommendations are intended to provide direction and guide provincial land management actions in nsek'lniw't. nsek'lniw't roughly translated means "a gash on the side" and is the syilx placename for the area that includes the McTaggart-Cowan Wildlife Management Area (WMA). A wildfire started in the nsek'lniw't area on August 18, 2020. These lands hold significant cultural values for members of the PIB and syilx nation. The areas burned by the Christie Mountain (K51287) wildfire have been protected by syilx people since time immemorial. The process used to define the recommendations in this report are in keeping with the values and principles of the syilx Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) keepers, the PIB, and the syilx nation. The goal of this report is to identify impacts to cultural and wildlife habitat values within the WMA from the Christie Mountain wildfire. The focus of the impact assessment is on culturally significant bighorn sheep, ungulates, and species at risk. This report includes recommendations made by the syilx Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) keeper group.
