For me the most striking thing about my trip there was meeting the native teenagers who were the hosts and dancers and guides at the Desert Cultural Center.  They radiated a tangible sense of pride and purpose.  Teenagers of all races and backgrounds would be lucky to be as poised and confident. You hear about troubled native youth... the young people working at the cultural center are the exact opposite.  Whatever they're doing at Osoyoos, they must be doing it right.


They have something to be proud of. The Cultural Centre, hotel, winery, restaurants, golf course and campground are all really good. The also have another golf course north of Oliver and have leased land to Area 27, a group which built a race track designed by Jacques Villeneuve for rich boys to play with their supercars, instead of killing people on lower mainland roads.
