Harry Wong of the Sinixt Nation Launches Sturgeon Nose Canoe, BC Rivers Day Celebration 2011, Slocan Valley BC
The grande finale of BC Rivers Day was a chance to ride in a sturgeon nosed canoe on the Slocan River. Harry Wong, grand son of Alexander Christian, who was the last Sinixt man to live at the confluence of the Kootenay and Columbia Rivers (now Brilliant), had the canoe commissioned by Paul Montgomery of Seattle. Wong who lives in Seattle, takes the canoe all over as a kind of “good will tool” to help with the recognition of the Sinixt as a band in Canada.
