Abstract: 

This thesis provides the first synthesis of Similkameen First Nations prehistory. It is based upon archaeological overview, inventory and impact assessment projects (1993?2004). Three main topics are investigated; 1) construction of a cultural chronology encompassing 200 to 10,000 years of valley prehistory, 2) a critical examination of the Plateau Microblade tradition (PMt) , and 3) a discussion of the problem of determining and/or assigning ethnicity to the archaeological record, specifically with regard to protohistoric and pre?contact Similkameen?Athapaskan and Salish?speaking populations.
