Description From Owner:
  • Lac Le Jeune - Originally known as Fish Lake. Renamed in honour of Father Jean-Marie Raphael Le Jeune, OMI (1855-1930), who arrived from France as a missionary priest in 1879.
  • He served first in the East Kootenay, then at Williams Lake, and finally at Kamloops.
  • Using the Chinook jargon printed in the French Duployan shorthand, he published for the Indians a number of books and one newspaper, the Kamloops Wawa (wawa is the Chinook jargon word for 'talk').
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
