Description From Owner:
  • Kleena Kleene - From the Kwakwala Indian word for eulachon grease, the prized staple of the Indian diet. The grease was rendered from the eulachon, small oil-laden fish caught in large numbers when they ascended coastal rivers in the early spring.
  • Coastal Indians found a ready market with the Interior bands for their excess eulachon grease, which was transported inland along the 'grease trails' from the heads of various coastal inlets.
  • There is no linguistic justification for the meaning 'river with many turns,' which is so commonly advanced by people living in the area.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
