The River has always been a central feature of this region. On October 19 join the Hope Mountain Centre on a raft trip from Yale to Hope to learn stories and place names attached to dozens of land and river features along the Fraser and stop at Welqámex where Simon Fraser stopped in 1808.
Stó:lō historian Sonny McHalsie and archaeologists Dave Schaepe and Lisa Dojack share their knowledge on the river and at the island village.
Thanks to Chawathil First Nation and the Stó:lō Research and Resource Management Centre.
