Stein Valley Provincial Park, British Columbia CM11-04

Description : Stein Valley Nlaka pamux Heritage Provincial Park was officially protected in 1995 and is jointly managed by the Lytton First Nation and BC Parks. The name Stein comes from the Nlaka pamux word Stagyn, which means hidden place referring to the fact that the valley and the extent of the watershed is not very noticeable from the Stein River\\\\\\\'s mouth on the Fraser River. The valley has been extremely important to the Nlaka’pamux people for thousands of years, both spiritually and for sustenance. This is evidenced by the large number of pictographs still visible today in various parts of the valley, ranging in size from single symbols to one of the largest pictograph sites in Canada.
