Skeena Elder Stories Project
SWCC volunteer, Gretel Miles, collected the stories of the lives of the elders & oldtimers of the Upper Skeena with the idea of preserving rich, shared heritage for future generations, as well as our own. Gretel compiled the interviews into a book. Some of the folks interviewed were commercial fishermen or worked as net menders on the coast, some were sports fishing guides, and some remember learning from grandparents by the river and in the smokehouse.
Gretel compiled all these astounding stories into a digital book, simply click on the image (below) to open up to a wealth of amazing Skeena history.
