Description From Owner:
  • Hapush Mountain - From the Kwakwala Indian word for 'boy.' Originally a surveyor proposed that this mountain be named Stung Mountain because, when he tried to make his way to a certain locality, he was stopped by this large mountain.
  • However, a bureaucrat in Ottawa judged the name 'not very appropriate.'
  • Huson Lake - After Alden Westley Huson (18321913), a prospector who arrived in British Columbia from the California goldfields in 1858. He found his way to this lake, which he named after himself, and to the nearby caves. Huson is pronounced 'Who-son.'
  • Klaklakama Lakes - Possibly from the Kwakwala Indian word meaning 'red surfaces.'
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
