Quesnel, BC

February 20, 2019

Quesnel City Council has agreed to return the land at Ceal Tingley Park to Lhtako Dene Nation for the proposed 18,000 square foot Lhtako Dene Indigenous Cultural Centre project. This site, at the confluence of the Fraser and Quesnel rivers is significant to the Lhtako Dene as the site of a major settlement. This site is also historically significant as the site of first contact with European explorers when Alexander Mackenzie first travelled through the area, and later, with Simon Fraser as he journeyed down the Fraser River.
