  • The Arrow Lakes Historical Society has this great photo of Kitty and her brother George, ca. 1907, when she was about 16. They’re on the Kaslo and Slocan Railway track on the spur line to Cody, bearing rifles at the Dead Man Slide. https://gregnesteroff.wixsite.com/kutnereader/post/pioneer-women-of-west-kootenay-kitty-hope

Description From Owner:
  • From Arrow Rock, which, in the days before the Keenleyside Dam flooded the area, was a high cliff on the east side of Lower Arrow Lake.
  • Three large crevices, approximately forty feet above the water, once held embedded hundreds of Indian arrows.
  • Aemilius Simpson, passing that way in 1826, referred to the rock by name and noted that the Indians used it for target practice.
  • A subsequent account, however, says that the arrows were shot to determine an Indian's luck: an arrow that lodged in the rock signified good fortune, while one that fell into the water signified bad fortune.
  • VIBC men amused themselves by firing volleys to bring down arrows.
