The Sorrento Centre is be a gathering place for all. That’s why our welcome sign in front of our main office rings out with “weyt-kp” – the Secwepemc word for hello to everyone! The Secwepemc people have lived for countless millenia in the region around the Sorrento Centre – and we gratefully acknowledge that our main campus and natural farm are on their traditional and unceded land.
The Secwepemc people have practiced the virtues of generosity towards each other and harmony towards Mother Earth since time immemorial. Generosity and harmony are virtues that we seek to realize every day at the Sorrento Centre.
