Welcome to the Snaza’ist Discovery Centre

We invite you to explore the incredible history of mining in the
Similkameen Valley - from time immemorial to today.

Visit us at the Snaza’ist Discovery Centre in Hedley, BC.
Here you will discover the legends and marks left by our
ancestors. For thousands of years, we mined ochre and
and chert, which we traded over most of western North America.

Take a Mascot Mine Tour, visit our discovery centre and learn

more about First Nations culture.  We also have a gift shop.
