The works of Coralee Miller are inspired by traditional Sylix/Okanagan Oral Stories, helping herself stay connected with her own culture and expressing love and pride for her heritage and the ways they were brought forth. 

Through these stories she connects daily life as well as her environment through a cultural perspective, wanting to share them and their integral teachings of bravery, forgiveness, responsibility and transformation with others.


Being a Sylix/Okanagan woman, Coralee is a member of the Westbank First Nation. Having grown up on the Ir#9 reserve in Westbank, she now works as a tour guide at the Sncewips Heritage Museum. Where she is able to combine her work with her passion for storytelling, culture and art.
