Ts,il,os Provincial Park, Nemiah Valley, Chilcotin, British Columbia, Canada 04

Description : Earning a living in this isolated valley was no easy feat. The Nemiah ran cattle and trapped through the winter, gardening and fishing in the finer months. Once a year, they hitched up their horses, loaded the wagons and journeyed into Williams Lake, driving cattle for sale and buying seeds and dry goods for the coming year. The trip took a week, one way. It was a life little changed from 100 years earlier, when the survivors of the short-lived Chilcotin War withdrew into the valley to live in safety apart from the white man.
