Longhouse - Back

The Stó:lō People

The Stó:lō are the original inhabitants of the Fraser Valley; they have been here since time immemorial and continue to live here today. The villages along the Fraser River housed hundreds of people in large structures called longhouses that have stood for hundreds of years in one location-passed down from one generation to the next. Prior to initial contact with European newcomers, the Stó:lō population was estimated to number up to 30,000 people.
