Description From Owner:
  • After Dr. George Mercer Dawson (1849-1901), the famous geologist who became the head of the Geological Survey of Canada in 1895.
  • A diminutive hunchback, Dawson showed heroic endurance in his surveys, which took him up and down the length of British Columbia. His excellent reports show a continual interest in place names.
  • In the summer of 1879, Dawson was travelling in this area and met Henry A.F. MacLeod, exploration engineer for the CPR. Although 'Dawson's Brook' appears on Dawson's subsequent map,
  • it may have been MacLeod who gave the name to this tributary of the Pouce Coup√© River.
  • Kiskatinaw River - From the Cree Indian word for 'cutbank.'
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
