HIST 103: Stó:lõ History: Home

Before We Begin

Territory acknowledgment : Long before Canada was formed, the Stó:lō (people of the river) occupied the land on which UFV is located. They lived in the Fraser Valley and lower Fraser Canyon of British Columbia and they spoke Halq'eméylem, also known as the upriver dialect.

This course examines key themes in the history of the Stó:lõ peoples, from the pre-contact era to the present.
Emphasis will be given to oral history as a way of accessing and documenting a community’s knowledge of its own past.

This guide has been developed as a general introduction to resources in the field of Sto:lo History. It is not a
comprehensive listing of sources, but rather a starting point from which you can begin your research according to your information needs.
