Since the increasing of the control of Secwepemc communities and resources by the people, the communities have grown in sophistication, in economic development, social development and the Secwepemc language, history and culture are on the return.

 People on the Move, N° 81 - Pastoral care of nomadic people: the Church's response
The Pontifical Council for the Pastoral care of Migrants and Itinerant People is one of the newer offices in the Roman Curia: it was in fact established on 28 June 1988 with the Apostolic Constitution Pastor Bonus[1].
The Pastoral Care for Nomads commenced with an International Congress for Pastoral Care of Nomads held in Rome from 25-27 February 1964, presided by the late Cardinal Carlo Confalonieri, Prefect of the Sacred Concistorial Congregation, and under the direction of Bishop Bernardin Collin, Bishop of Digne (France).
Pastoral work therefore includes the necessity to integrate the family of nomads into the hosting parish community with full respect for the cultural differences and ethnic values of this minority and it is possible to open missions for the care of souls and personal parishes where the circumstances so require.

 Native American History - Pre-European Period
The earliest, and best-known, of these "founders" are called the Clovis people, named after a site in New Mexico where, in the 1930s, large, bifacially flaked stone spear points were found in direct association with mammoth bones (in some instances actually embedded in the rib bones on the mammoths).
Everything seemed to fit quite nicely: no people in the Americas before 12,000 years ago (because of the ice sheets), the opening of an ice-free corridor beginning around 12,000 years ago, and the "sudden" appearance of Clovis at about 11,400 years ago, and their seemingly rapid spread over much of North America.
If the Clovis people (and their immediate genetic and cultural ancestors) came through an "ice-free corridor" and emerged onto the great plains of North America, their subsistence in all probability centered on the taking of mega-fauna, supplimented by familiar plant foods.

 Wandering Nomads - Walking excursions into the African wilderness/Portraits of a Nomadic People
It is to these nomadic people that this website and accompanying photo gallery are dedicated, for it is they that hold the key to the limitless canyons, volcanic mountains, soda lakes, open savannahs, deserts and endemic wildlife that epitomise the area.
That said, it is very rare that westerners are at risk because essentially they pose no threat to the local nomads with regards to the acquisition of their cattle.
These travelling companions should essentially consist of: an experienced guide with full knowledge of the outlying area which you are to traverse, an accomplished headman (camel or donkey handler) and, of course, the animals themselves, donkeys or camels, the choosing of which will depend entirely on the terrain you are to cover.

An average monthly salary is $50 to $60; there are virtually no paved roads outside the capital; nomadic herders are selling off their animals and urbanizing; and the average temperature for nearly half the year is below freezing, which results in a difficult growing season for crops and loss of livestock in especially difficult winters.
People live off the land and their livestock the same way they did centuries ago.
Ironically, these “luxury” purchases by nomadic herders that are enhancing life in the countryside, and thus are helping to preserve the nomadic culture, are the product of Western technology.
