Alongside the beautiful riverside setting of the Bridge River Fishing Grounds, you can take part in a tour and demonstration of traditional salmon fishing techniques. Still today, the St’át’imc people use wind drying racks to dry the salmon and prepare for the colder winter months.
S7ístken archaeological tours allow visitors to walk through the historical area which is currently under study by the University of Montana. S7ístkens (pithouses) are traditional winter houses that were used by the St’át’imc people. The community rebuilt one of the S7ístkens, allowing people to walk into and experience for themselves what a real S7ístken looks like!
What would a day of learning of traditional fishing techniques be like without a taste of the local salmon? Finish off your tour with a salmon BBQ and of course authentic bannock. You can choose from a combination of all three tours or one of the day’s tours.
