The 4 clans around Burns Lake area—Beaver, Caribou, Frog, and Bear

Late September 2018

Although there are 9 bands in this geographical area of BC, there are 4 clans. These clans are represented by totems around downtown Burns Lake… Just off the main highway that goes through downtown.  

They are also represented by wooden carvings on the grounds in front of the newest Hotel just west of town.

The hotel is owned by one or more bands and is also the location of the cheapest gas in town. Unfortunately as I don’t own a status card, I don’t benefit from the cheap rate. The fuel is even cheaper there than in Prince George!

Across the street is the only (and much used) car wash in town. I’ve never been there when it wasn’t busy!
