Torgny, thanks for your interest. Place names taken from Native languages are very common in British Columbia. They are colorful and historical reminders that there were thriving, sophisticated cultures living here long before the white man arrived.

"S-Ookanhkchinx" in the Okanagan language translates to mean "transport toward the head or top end this refers to the people traveling from the head of the Okanagan Lake to where the Okanagan river meet the Columbia river."Quote taken from the Okanagan Nation Alliance website linked to below.

Thank you all for your appreciative comments.
