A story about two little girls, best friends, growing up in the Okanagan Valley before the coming of the white people.

 Neekna and Chemai are two little girls, best friends, growing up in the Okanagan Valley before the coming of the white people. For these girls, secure in the love and warmth of their relations, all the world is a beautiful adventure. They learn the stories and lifeways from mothers, grandmothers and little mothers. They are at home in the world in a way that may be inconceivable to contemporary non-Native society. Neekna and Chemai is a gift from the Okanagan people to a world in sore need of what they have to offer.
