Wild Foods Website Will Include Translations into Syilx

Penticton, BC

Jan. 3, 2015

The website being unveiled this year for the new APTN program Wild Foods will include translation of several sections of the site into Syilx, the language of the Okanagan people.

Wild Foods: Quest Out West features host Tracey Kim Bonneau, and takes viewers on a culinary adventure every episode, hunting or gathering wild foods and turning them into exquisite gourmet meals. Whether Tracey is hunting deer, fishing for wild salmon, or even roping cattle on an aboriginal ranch, the recipes in Wild Food all have a story and an adventure behind them.

Wild Food also explores the rugged and beautiful landscape of the Okanagan region in British Columbia, and the rich culture of the Okanagan Nation.

“This isn’t just a show about food and cooking,” said website project manager Gary Symons of Nomadic Media Group. “It is equally a program about the people and the culture in this unique region, so it made a lot of sense to put the Syilx language front and centre. Tracey has long been a strong advocate for preserving aboriginal languages, and this is one contribution we can make through the Wild Foods project.”

Wild Foods: Quest Out West will air in 2015 on APTN.
