Description From Owner:
  • Babine (the French word for a large or pendulous lip) was applied by the early voyageurs to the Indians liv ing around the lake.
  • Once female Indians reached puberty, they wore a labret (a plug of bone or wood) in the lower lip, gradually distending it far beyond its normal shape.
  • Old Fort Babine (or Fort Kilmaurs) was founded in 1822, partly as a furtrading post but more importantly as a source for dried salmon should the Fraser River salmon run fail.
  • Babine Lake was known to the Carrier Indians as 'Na-taw-bun-kut,' or 'Long Lake.'
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
