Description From Owner:
  • Pavilion - From the French pavillion, for a flag or a tent. In his journal for 30 September 1826, Archibald McDonald mentions 'An Indian from the Pavillon.'
  • Commander Mayne tells us that, in accordance with the Indians' custom, a large white flag once waved here over the grave of one of their chiefs.
  • The Shuswap Indian name for Pavilion Lake meant 'where someone broke wind over the water.' (For the legend behind this name, see James Teit, The Shuswap, pp. 752-3.)
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
