indigenous culture

Kt U na X a (p R ono U nced ‘ K - too-nah-ha’) people have occ U p I ed the lands adjacent to the Kootenay and c ol U m BI a R I ve R s and the aRR ow l a K es of B RI t I sh c ol U m BI a, c anada fo R mo R e than 15,000 yea R s.

ʔakisqakⱡiʔit (ah-kiss-gakth-lee-it), the place “where the two creeks meet”, is central to the Rocky Mountain Trench in the Kootenay region of southeastern British Columbia, a place the ʔaq’amnik people call home. A place now known as Cranbrook.

Cranbrook resides in Ktunaxa ʔamakʔis, the homeland of the Ktunaxa Nation. Scientific evidence has dated Ktunaxa presence as far back as 15,000 years ago. For thousands of years the Ktunaxa people enjoyed the natural bounty of the Kootenay region, seasonally migrating throughout Ktunaxa ʔamakʔis, hunting and gathering.

Led by the dignified and respected Chief Isadore, the Ktunaxa people’s lives were changed forever by the challenges brought forth by European settlement in the late 1800s. These included the establishment of a residential school, and federally imposed land policies which eventually lead to the creation of the present day Indian Bands. Today, the four Ktunaxa communities, ʔakisq nuk First Nation, ʔaq’am, ʔakink um asnuq iʔit (Tobacco Plains Indian Band) and yaqan nukiy (Lower Kootenay Band) have worked with great effort to restore their culture and their language. If you visit the St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino, located near ʔaq’am Community nearest Cranbrook, you will witness the strength of the Ktunaxa people. Previously a residential school, and responsible for tearing away their culture and language, it is now one of Canada’s most beautiful destination resorts, 100% owned by the Ktunaxa Nation.

the K t U na X a c R eat I o n sto R y

The Ktunaxa people have been in this area since Naⱡmuqȼin fulfilled his prophecy and placed the Ktunaxa people in this area to be the keepers of the land. At that time there was some disturbance caused by a huge water monster known as Yawuʔnik, who killed many of the animals. It was decided that Yawuʔnik had to be destroyed. A war party was formed. Yawuʔnik plied the Kootenay (wu·u ʔaqsⱡmaknik ʔakinmituk) and Columbia (Miȼqaqas) River System. When Yawuʔnik was killed, and butchered and distributed among the animals, Yawuʔnik’s ribs were scattered throughout the region that now form the Hoodoos seen throughout the region.

When the prophecy was fulfilled the spirit animals ascended above and are now the guiding spirits of the Ktunaxa. In all the excitement Naⱡmuqȼin rose to his feet and stood upright hitting his head on the ceiling of the sky. He knocked himself dead. His feet went northward and is today known as Ya·kⱡiki, in the Yellowhead Pass vicinity.

Naⱡmuqȼin’s head is near Yellowstone Park in the State of Montana. His body forms the Rocky Mountains.

1807 The first European settlers arrived in the region, including David Thompson, a fur trader and map-making explorer, who crossed the Rocky Mountains to explore the area.

1863 Gold was discovered nearby, and the gold rush began. Some 5,000 men rushed to the region to pan and prosper.

1883 Col. James Baker bought most of the current townsite. Baker named his property “Cranbrook” after his home in Kent, England.

1887 Sam Steele, of the North West Mounted Police arrived to address conflicts between Col. James Baker and the Ktunaxa people.

1898 A typhoid outbreak prompted the community to build the first hospital at St. Eugene Mission. The hospital was outgrown, built again and then one more time outgrown before relocating in 1901 to a larger facility in Cranbrook, also renamed the St. Eugene Mission.

1905 Cranbrook was incorporated as a city, with a population of 2000. It had water, a sewer, and a telephone system built by local businessmen.

1940 The population of Cranbrook had grown to 3000. Few places in the world were untouched by the horrors of WW2, and Cranbrook pays tribute to its fallen heros on the Wall Of Honour in Rotary Park.

2022 Continued growth and development over the last century has meant that Cranbrook today is a vibrant modern city with a population of approximately 20,000.

History & heritage

Located on Highway 3/95, the cR an BR oo K h I sto R y cent R e provides a fascinating insight into the history of rail travel and is a must-see for any train-enthusiast. Highlights of the railcar collection include the 1907 “Soo-Spokane Train” and the 1927 “Strathcona” which has accommodated VIP guests including Queen Elizabeth II and Sir Winston Churchill.

Widely considered to be the most elegant public venue in southeastern BC, inside the history centre you can see the beautiful Royal a le X and R a h all that began its life in Winnipeg in 1906. When the hotel was demolished in 1971, its ballroom was carefully disassembled and stored until it was acquired by the Cranbrook History Centre, reconstructed and then reopened in Cranbrook in 2004. You can learn about Cranbrooks history, natural history and local paleontology through the exhibits. For kids, the Centre offers as scavenger hunt throughout the exhibit spaces and a game

of eye-spy in the impressive model train display. The history centre also hosts monthly lectures and seasonal programmes, such as summer walking tours and games.

Located at 11-11th Avenue South, the s t U d I o & s tage d oo R was built in 1909, and originally served as Cranbrook Freemason’s Masonic Lodge, and is now home to Cranbrook Community Theatre.

Just down from the Studio & Stage Door, you’ll find fIR e h all n o.1 . Cranbrook’s original fire hall was established in 1929 and served the City until 2011.

“ S I n C e IT W AS W ITHI n TH e S T eU gene M ISSI on S CH oo L THAT TH e CULTU re of TH e Koo T en A y In DIA n WAS TAK en AWA y , IT SH o ULD B e WITHI n THAT BUILDI ng THAT IT IS re TU rne D . ” – e lde R m a R y p a U l, 1984

In 2017, two friends transformed the dilapidated old fire hall into a unique craft beer tap house and gastropub, injecting life back into the old building while remaining sensitive to its heritage.

Established in 1910 and originally named the Kootenay Indian Residential School, the s t. eU gene mI ss I on holds a dark history for the Ktunaxa people. The only project in Canada where an icon of such repression has been transformed into an ambitious and successful economic venture, the renovated old mission is now the St Eugene Golf Resort and Casino. The project has preserved wonderful original architectural features, and simultaneously recognizes the sad and difficult cultural legacy and shining future potential of the site.

Since its gold rush beginnings in 1864, f o R t s teele has gone from boomtown to regional centre, to ghost town, to one of the most important heritage attractions of its kind in British Columbia.

In 1961, after a public petition to the Provincial Government, Fort Steele was declared an historic park with a mandate “to preserve, present, and manage for public benefit the historic settlement of Fort Steele”.

Perched on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains, Fort Steele is a dynamic living history museum, and attracts over 80,000 visitors a year to witness first hand what life was like in days gone by.

discover your wildside

Cranbrook and its vast surrounding B ac K c o U nt R y of forests and mountains are home to grizzly bears, black bears, moose, deer, coyotes, wolves, cougars, beavers and mountain goats, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Our region contains one of North America’s longest intact wetlands - the c ol U m BI a w etl ands . It plays host to an incredible diversity of birds, including majestic bald eagles, ospreys and great blue herons.

With 300 unique bird species in the region, birders will delight in watching Canada geese, owls, hawks, wild turkeys and trumpeter swans, a provincially blue-listed species. In the spring please be cautious around nesting birds, making sure to give them adequate space.

Located to the west of Cranbrook, e l I za B eth l a K e is a large wetland area and w I ldl I fe sanct U a R y covering 5.9 hectares (13 acres). Walking trails around the park and lake lead to bird-watching blinds and viewpoints, as well as picnic tables and benches.

The sanctuary is cared for by the Roc K y m o U nta I n n at UR al I sts and is home to many different animal species, from Western Painted Turtles and ground squirrels to permanent and migratory birds.

g et familiar with bear , moose and cougar safety practices before you go into the backcountry to keep both animals and humans safe. Make noise and hike in groups - animals don’t like to be surprised!

Rearing up to three million baby trout annually, the Kootenay tR o U t h atche R y works hard every year to enhance recreational fishing opportunities in the area.

Everything you need to get started is provided; gear is available to loan and guides are happy to help get you started. Learn to Fish Programs can be arranged in advance and there is a stocked fishing pond on site for new anglers to practice their skills in catch and release angling.

The species raised include Rainbow trout, Cutthroat trout, Brook Char and Kokanee salmon. The red-listed White Sturgeon are also raised for conservation purposes.

For camping, kayaking, non-motorised boat launch and excellent fishing all in one stunning location, check out Norbury and Peckham’s Lakes located in the Fort Steele area.
