The Nicola-Similkameen were an enclave of Athapaskans living in the Nicola and Similkameen river valleys of south-central BC (and, marginally, north-central Washington state), surrounded by Interior Salish. 

Nicola-Similkameen settlement had a long history in this area, having moved from a more northerly Athapaskan homeland many hundreds of years ago.
