Description From Owner:
  • Kanaka Bar - The Kanakas were Hawaiian Islanders. Even before 1834, when the H BC established a post at Honolulu, its trading ships brought a number of Kanakas to British Columbia.
  • After leaving the HBC'S employment, some of them washed for gold at Kanaka Bar.
  • The Thompson Indian name for Kanaka Bar means 'crossing-place,' referring to the Fraser River.
  • Siska Creek - This word and its variant, Cisco, are generally thought to be derived from the Thompson Indian word meaning 'uncle.' However, another translation has been proposed: 'lots of splits [small cracks] in the rocks.'
