Sto:lo - People of the River
The native heritage of the Hope and Fraser Canyon area is rich in culture and tradition. The Sto:lo people can trace their heritage back between 9,000 and 11,000 years. That history goes hand in hand with life on the Fraser River. The river not only supplied a means of food and transport to the early Sto:lo, it also figured highly in their ceremony and ritual. A common annual tradition was to share the first salmon caught with the whole community. The bones of the fish were then returned to the river from where they had come. The word Sto:lo, in the Salish language, means “people of the river”. While many may consider the earliest residents of the area as primitive, in fact their culture and beliefs were highly complex. Naming, social rank, education and hospitality held many complex forms and rituals. The Sto:lo, however, are only part of the Fraser Canyon’s vast First Nation history with many independent First Nation bands scattered from Hope to Lytton. The Yale, Spuzzum, Boston Bar and Boothroyd First Nations are currently involved in many new tourism, fishing and forestry initiatives. For more information on the First Nations people visit the Hope, Yale or Lytton museums. Locally made native crafts can be found at the Telte-Yet Campground Gift Shop in Hope at the Hope River General Store, between Hope and Yale, and at the Siska Art Gallery south of Lytton.
