Description From Owner:
  • After Alice, wife of the Reverend Robert Tomlinson. Immediately after their wedding day in Victoria in 1868, Alice and her new husband journeyed
  • for twenty-four days in a large Haida canoe manned by eight Indians (and an Indian woman to serve the bride) before arriving at their mission station at Kincolith.
  • Dak River from the Nisgha Indian word meaning 'lake.'
  • Kitsault River - From a Nisgha Indian word meaning 'space behind.' This probably refers to the location of Kitsault Indian village at the head of Alice Arm in relation to Nass Valley and Observatory Inlet.
