The colonization of Nlaka’pamux territory

I have been working through many secondary sources to help me fill in the missing background knowledge I have concerning the history of colonization among my people. As I do this I am amazed at the tales that come from the early explorers such as Simon Fraser, and his journey among the Nlaka’pamux or as he called us the Hacamaugh. The exploration and colonization of what is now British Columbia was solely for the purpose of finding a supply route for the fur trade as controlled by the North West company, which Fraser had become a partner.

I have now begun to look through some of the early accounts of the early missionaries, like the Anglican and Oblates.
