A graduate of the En’owkin Centre, Okanagan artist Bill Cohen has explored and recorded the once-thriving tradition of the “Indian Cowboy” and the history of Aboriginal ranching and rodeos in the original Okanagan territory that encompassed the Okanagan Valley and Southern Interior of British Columbia and northern Washington State. Included in Stories and Images of What the Horse has Done For Us are photographs from the late 1800s onwards. He also illustrated Ellen White’s Kwulasulwut II and Jordan Wheeler’s Chuck in the City (Theytus, 2000), two children’s books.
