Note on Native History

Note- These web pages cover only the European/Asian History of this area, of the last hundred years or so. I will leave the First Nations to record and publish their own history, as I have limited information available to me. The term “Indian” is used where it is the historically accurate term, in regards to job titles etc., and is not meant in any derogatory way. If the term is being quoted from a book, census, etc, then it will be written in my pages that way. I don't personally agree with the way the European came and took over this land, but I am not going to judge them here, after the fact. Just as it is important to have a record of Native history in the area, I also feel these men and women need their history saved. This is the purpose of this web page.




Note- NOT my web sites, Links may or may not work in the future, I do NOT control their content
