Description From Owner:
  • A surveyor's error for 'Decker,' the name of a family from the Canirn Lake Indian Reserve that used to fish here.
  • Green Lake - This lake, approximately thirty miles long, has no outlet other than underground drainage. The consequent accumulation of soda, salt, sulphur, and other elements has caused its notable green colour. The early anthropologist James Teit wrote:
  • Exchange of various goods took place at Green Lake, where great numbers from all divisions of the Shuswap tribe congregated once a year to have sports and to trap trout etc
  • Here the Lake Division sold some dried trout, nets, carrying-bags, some cedar-root, very dark marmot-skins, and a few baskets, principally to the Fraser River bands, for dried salmon, salmon oil, and shells. The North Thompson band brought hazel nuts to
  • Horse Lake - This name appears on A.C. Anderson's map of 1867 with the notation 'Lac des Chevaux Noyés [Lake of the Drowned Horses] 1827.' The first HBC brigade trail from Kamloops to Alexandria passed by here.
