First Nations People Fishing On The Bulkley River In Moricetown British Columbia

Moricetown is a Wet'suwet'en village in Central British Columbia, Canada on the west side of the Bulkley River on Coryatsaqua (Moricetown) Indian Reserve No. 2, and on Moricetown Indian Reserve No.1. 

The current village was built during the early 1900s. Evidence of inhabitants date back to around 5,500 years ago. The original name of the village was Witset. 

It was abandoned after a rockslide that prevented salmon from reaching the canyon. Witsuwit'en people then settled in Tsë Cakh (Hagwilget) and referred to the old village as Këyikh Wigit (often spelled Kyah Wiget). It was renamed after the pioneer missionary Father Adrien-Gabriel Morice.

On a side note, I had my largest Sasquatch case come out of Moricetown, B.C. as tracks from the critter went on and on, as far as I could see, they never ended.
