    The history of Princeton is deeply intertwined with the rich heritage of the Indigenous peoples who have inhabited the land for thousands of years. Long before the arrival of European settlers, the region was home to Indigenous communities, including the Syilx (Okanagan) and Nlaka'pamux (Thompson) First Nations, who thrived in harmony with the land, relying on hunting, fishing, and gathering for sustenance. The rivers and forests of the Princeton area provided vital resources and served as important travel routes, shaping the cultural and spiritual practices of the Indigenous peoples who called this land home.

    The arrival of European fur traders and gold prospectors in the mid-19th century brought significant changes to the region, leading to the displacement and marginalization of Indigenous communities. Despite facing encroachment on their traditional territories and disruptions to their way of life, Indigenous peoples have persevered, maintaining their cultural identity and connection to the land. Today, efforts are underway to recognize and honor the contributions of Indigenous peoples to the history and heritage of Princeton and to foster greater collaboration and understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.
