Information on the history of the First Nations reserves around Penticton is a bit sketchy.  However, I did find this 1974 report to the Union of BC Indian Chiefs which fills in some of the gaps, especially regarding the cut-off of the West Bench under the Veteran's Land Act (VLA) and the sale of adjacent lots (now Husula Highlands, Westwood Properties, and Sage Mesa) to individuals.  Unfortunately, it says little about the KVR per se, although it does mention the issue of cut-offs for rail right-of-way.

The link to the file is here: http://www.ubcic.bc.ca/files/PDF/McKenna_McBride/lands.pdf. Please note that this is a scanned document, so it is quite large.
