    First Nations Culture and History

    The South Carrier and Chilcotin First Nations inhabited Anahim Lake and the Interior Plateau centuries before European exploration. First Nations people in the area established routes known as the "Grease Trails" which stretch north to the Quesnel River, south to 100 Mile House and west to Bella Coola. Anahim Lake is named for Chief Anu x'im (pronounced "An-no-him"), meaning "the beginning of creation," or "the dawn of time when the first light came in."

    Ranching and Local Legends

    Alexander Mackenzie chiefly led European exploration. Soon ranchers, including local legends Panhandle Phillips and Richmond Hobson, settled Anahim Lake. These ranchers used the Blackwater Trail, which passes between the mountains, for transporting supplies. Today, the trail is used for horseback riding. Hobson documented the lives of ranchers in his bestselling books Grass Beyond the Mountains, Nothing too Good for a Cowboy, and The Rancher Takes a Wife. The CBC television series, "Nothing Too Good for A Cowboy" is based on these stories.
