Victoria Legislature Parliament Buildings, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada 01

Description : The spirit of the Lekwammen people pervades the history of Victoria. When European ships sailed through the Georgia and Juan de Fuca Straits, there were 10 Lekwammen villages along the shores of what is now Greater Victoria.
Fort Victoria was built in 1843 in the area known today as Old Town, now the heart of Victoria,s downtown. Thousands of Aboriginal people converged on BC,s coast to trade with the European arrivals. Miners made their way to the region in the late 1800s, setting the stage for a dramatic population shift.
