Description From Owner:
  • Tzouhalem Summit - Named after one of the fiercest of the war chiefs of the Cowichans. In 1844 he led an attack on Fort Victoria after the HBC tried to collect damages for cattle that his band had slain.
  • Because of his frequent murders, he was banished at last by his fellow Indians and took up residence in a cave on the side of Mount Tzuhalem. He had some fourteen wives with him, most of whom were widowed by him.
  • Going to Kuper Island to acquire a new wife, Tzuhalem was slain by her husband before Tzuhalem could kill him.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
