The canoeists started their journey from Stuart Lake to Prince George on Monday June 5th. Travelling the same route fur traders took in the early days of the region, they travelled the Stuart River to Fort St. James, then the Nechako River to Vanderhoof, and down the Nechako to the Fraser River where they arrived this afternoon at Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park.
The route is the same one fur traders travelled in the early days of this region.
In addition to being welcomed by Lhedli T-enneh Elder, Edith Frederick, the canoeists were welcomed to a show and tell about a birch bark canoe.
This Brigade is one of many happening across the country this summer to mark the country’s 150th Anniversary.
