Description From Owner:
  • Hawkins Creek - After Lieutenant-Colonel John S. Hawkins, RE, commissioner, British Boundary Commission, 1858-62.
  • Moyie River - David Thompson named it McDonald's River after his clerk, Finan McDonald, while Governor Simpson called it the Grand Quote in honour of an Indian chief.
  • The name Moyie or Mooyie is very old, however, and is a corruption of the French mouill√©, meaning 'wet.' Lees and Clutterbuck, who were this way in 1887, had some bitter things to say about 'this water-logged Mooyie valley.'
  • Yahk River - Although the Kootenay Indian word for 'arrow' is somewhat similar to Yahk, the true meaning of Yahk appears to be 'female caribou.'
