    Historic and ethnographic accounts document the Sinixt as the native inhabitants of the Upper Columbia River drainage at the time of the arrival of Europeans in the 19th century. Through displacement and historical circumstance, the band was declared extinct in Canada in 1956, and Sinixt people lost their designation under the Indian Act. In the 1980s, activists returned to their traditional territory to protect threatened gravesites, and some have stayed on to seek official recognition as Aboriginal people of Canada. In this film, the voices of Sinixt people and local residents of the West Kootenay come together to explain webs of ancestral responsibility and attachment to the land. Their ongoing struggle highlights the complexities of legislating ethnic identity the continuing impact of this colonial process. This project was begun with funding from the Digital Humanities Initiative (DHi) and Hamilton College in Clinton, NY (Check out http://www.dhinitiative.org/projects/search/ to see more of the related undergraduate projects led by Dr. Nathan Goodale) and completed through a grant from Fulbright Canada with support from Simon Frasier University in Burnaby, BC.

    • Exploring the Kootenays

      Having seen and heard good things about the Kootenays, we packed up the kids and drove over to Revelstoke, across the Arrow Lakes on the Galena Ferry, along Trout Lake and into the Kootenay Lake region. The highlights of this trip were the awesome climb up the Duncan-Lavina FSR to the Lavina Fire Lookout and the old ghost mining towns of Sandon & Cody. We also stopped at the Buchanan Lookout over Kaslo, visited New Denver and ventured inside the hotsprings caves of Ainsworth along the way. We did attempt Healy Creek, but about 14km in, the road is completely gone to the creek below. Leaving Kaslo on the last day, we stopped for dinner in Kokanee Glacier Park and continued south but could not actually find any place to camp. Surprising since you're in the interior surrouded by trees. FSRs were all gated. So we pushed onto Rossland and the Old Cascades Hwy in the dark, finally finding the Santa Rosa Rec Site.

              Jeremy Down is an artist who derives his inspiration from the natural world, delving deep into himself and the landscape to produce his remarkable works. His raw relationship with the mountains and lakes around his home in BC's Slocan Valley has yielded some impressive canvasses - but it also almost cost him his life. His near drowning in 2000 while out painting in his canoe, induced a near-death experience that would change his approach to painting as well as living.

                  Yet another trip in my "Around my Rockies" series. This time on August 27 I drove from Calgary to the town of Revelstoke, Brithish Columbia. Then I parked my car by small motel 'Monashee Lodge' and half an hour later hopped on my Norco. Six days, on September 2 and about 760 kms later I was back in the exact same spot. All that after visiting one of the most beautiful parts of British Columbia. I left Revelstoke south to Nakusp and then New Denver, Silverton, Slocan, Castlegar, Grand Forks, Rock Creek, Kelowna, Vernon, Sicamous and back to Revelstoke. Another amazing scenery and another great trip!
