Description From Owner:
  • Peace River - The Sekani Indians of north-central British Columbia knew this as Tse-tai-e-ka, meaning 'the river that runs by the rocks,' referring to its canyon through the Rocky Mountains.
  • The Crees called it A-mis-kwe-i-moo-si-pi, meaning 'the Beaver Indian River.'
  • As for the Beaver Indians, they came to call it Unjigah, Unchaga, or Unjaja, variant forms of their word for 'peace.'
  • They called this 'the Peace River' because of Peace Point near Lake Athabasca. Some time before 1790, the Knistenaux (Cree) and Beaver Indians ended a territorial war by setting their boundary at this point in the river.
