On August 16,1896 George and Kate Carmack, and Kate's brother discovered gold in creek that went into the Klondike river. (only George Carmack received credit to the discovery!!!!) The creek was later called Bonanza Creek. The gold discovery traveled fast. Within weeks people came to"The Klondike" from many different parts of North America. (Hoping to get rich by finding gold) about 100,000 came to the area in only a few years. This period was called the Gold rush. The Klondike gold rush happened between 1896-1899. It was also called "The Yukon, The Klondike gold rush, The Alaska-Yukon gold rush, and the Last gold rush.

In 1886,gold was discovered in a town by Quesnel. Several different towns grew around the Cariboo gold rush.(example:Barkville ( now a Heritage site) Getting the gold out was a big challenge. The Cariboo Wagon Road was created for this. It was a project that took years to finish.

Manzo Nagano
*19 year old Manzo Nagano was the first Japanese settler in Canada.
*He stowed away on a British ship in 1877.
*In 1977, (the one hundredth aniversary of his arrival). the Canadian government celebrated the event by naming a mountain after him.
*That mountain is part of the Coast Mountains range.
*Others Japanese immigrants followed and some families settled along the Fraser River.
*Those immigrants worked in canneries, a very hard job, but it was worth it for the money.
*During world war 2, Japan was at war with all the allied countries including Canada.
*Japanese people in Canada were all considered enemies even though many were Canadian citizens and had never even been to Japan.
*In the region, Japanese people were sent to internment camps in the interior of British Columbia.
*Their property, including their homes and businesses was taken by the Canadian government.
When the war finally ended, the Japanese Canadians were released and some moved to Japan, others began their businesses again.
The Japanese In the region
*In the 1900s, thousands of Sikhs came to Vancouver from India.
*They came because of the opportunity of work/money, they worked in the railway construction,forestry,and lumber mills

Metals Coal Oil Fish Water Soil
*There are more than 100 different First Nations groups in The Cordillera Region.
*The Coastal First Nations Groups are very connected to the ocean, rivers, and forests.
*In the spring, summer, and fall, coastal First Nations families traveled from one village or camp to the next within their territories. (These areas chosen were chosen because they were good for hunting, fishing, growing plats, or gathering berries).
*During the Winter they gathered together in large winter villages.
*For the First Nations, the sea was a very important resource as it was used for food and travel.
*They often built canoes and often traveled very long distances.
*Many kinds of plants, fish, and other animals were used from the sea for food.
*First Nations Groups inland had their own unique ways of living.
*Some groups built pit houses in the Winter to keep warm.
*In the summer they made homes from bulrushes and animal hides.
*Deer was a very important animal for the Inland First Nations. (they used every part of it so none of it went to waste).
*The First Nations people living in different parts of the Region all developed new unique languages and ways of life.

Lumber Electricity Animals
These are all examples of natural resources in the cordillera region. Natural resources have to me made by nature and are stuff that people use, not man-made. I guess lumber is man-made but it is trees so just say trees not lumber. Coal and oil are found underground usually. Metals are also from underground. Electricity is found underground too. You would find soil at around sea level. Fish are found underwater (of course).

*stayed and built communities despite their poor treatment and pay.
*The first Sikh temple was built in 1908(in Vancouver).
*This temple and many others would become the center of Sikh communitys
*These temples were both places of workship,and social cominyy centers
