Description From Owner:
  • Kettle River - The Ne-hoi-al-pit-qua of the Indians and the Colvile River of the early whites.
  • Of the various theories about the name 'Kettle River,' the two most likely are (1) that it comes from the boiling, seething Kettle Falls, known as La Chaucli√©re to early explorers, and (2) that it comes from the round holes, shaped like cauldrons,
  • that water has hollowed out in the rocks. Governor Simpson gave the second explanation in 1847.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
