The '''Thompson-Nicola Regional District''' is a regional district in the Canadian province (Provinces and territories of Canada) of British Columbia. The Canada 2006 Census population was 122,286 and the area covers 45,279 square kilometres. The administrative offices are in the main population centre is the city of Kamloops (Kamloops, British Columbia), which accounts for 75 percent of the regional district's population. The only other city is Merritt (Merritt, British Columbia); however, there are locally important communities such as the District Municipality (district municipality) of Logan Lake (Logan Lake, British Columbia), and the Villages of Chase (Chase, British Columbia), Ashcroft (Ashcroft, British Columbia), Cache Creek (Cache Creek, British Columbia), Clinton (Clinton, British Columbia) and Lytton (Lytton, British Columbia). The region is named indirectly for the Thompson River by way of the traditional regional names of "the Thompson Country" and "the Nicola Country"; the Nicola Country was named for Chief Nicola (Nicola (chief)) and was originally "Nicola's Country", where he held sway; he is also the namesake of that river. The area is governed by the Thompson-Nicola Regional District which operates over 115 services including the region's libraries, solid waste management and recycling, emergency and development services, plus a film commission. between the valleys of the Stein River (N) and Kwoiek Creek (S). As a region and historical identity, the Cariboo is sometimes considered to extend to the Thompson River to the south of that, and to border on the city of Kamloops (Kamloops, British Columbia) at its southeastern corner and even as far as Lytton (Lytton, British Columbia), at the confluence of the Fraser and Thompson Rivers. The town of Lillooet (Lillooet, British Columbia) is generally considered to be in the Cariboo, while the Bridge River Country to its west was sometimes referred to as the West Cariboo, as were also the ranches along the west side of the Fraser northwards towards the Gang Ranch (Gang Ranch, British Columbia). Broader meanings of "the Cariboo" sometimes include the Chilcotin (Chilcotin District), west of the Fraser. The geographic region known as the Quesnel Highland, which forms a mountainous series of foothills between the plateau proper and the Cariboo Mountains, is likewise considered to be part of the Cariboo in a cultural-historical sense – not the least because it is the location of the famous Cariboo goldfields (Cariboo Gold Rush) and the one-time economic capital of the Interior of British Columbia, Barkerville (Barkerville, British Columbia). Governorship of Sir James Douglas The influx of people into the new colony required Douglas to act quickly in drawing up regulations and creating infrastructure. Magistrates and constables were hired, mining regulations drawn up, and townsites surveyed at Yale, Hope (Hope, British Columbia) and Fort Langley (Fort Langley, British Columbia) in order to discourage squatting on crown land. In addition, roads were constructed into the areas of greatest mining exploration around Lillooet (Lillooet, British Columbia) and Lytton (Lytton, British Columbia). The colony, however, was not immediately granted a representative (representative government) colonial assembly, because of uncertainty as to whether the gold rush would yield a stable, settled population. Douglas, who had endured unhappy conflicts with the assembly on Vancouver Island, was relieved. thumb right A portion of the Cariboo Road (File:Cariboo Road.jpg) in the Fraser Canyon, circa 1867. thumb Skihist Provincial Park (File:Skihist Provincial Park (157709431).jpg) '''Skihist Provincial Park''' is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada, located on the Thompson River and adjacent to the Trans-Canada Highway between the towns of Lytton (Lytton, British Columbia) (W) and Spences Bridge (Spences Bridge, British Columbia) (E). The park is named for Skihist Mountain, which is visible from the park though on the opposite side of the Fraser River to the west of Lytton. The Ktunaxa (Kutenai) people who neighboured the Sinixt to the east were driven further into the mountains by the Blackfoot, who had obtained control of Ktunaxa territory in the foothills and northwestern plains. Ethnographic and historical evidence suggests the Ktunaxa and the Sinixt battled each other over the territory along the lower Kootenay River between the present cities of Nelson (Nelson, British Columbia) and Castlegar, British Columbia. The Ktunaxa were considered the intruders, and the dispute was reportedly ended after the Sinixt mounted a large-scale raid into (Lower) Ktunaxa Territory at the south end of Kootenay Lake. The Sinixt later renewed their historic peace with the Ktunaxa, and took common cause with them, the Kalispel (Pend d'Oreilles (tribe)), the Flathead (Choctaw), the Coeur d'Alene (#Coeur D'Alene Tribe), the Spokane (Spokane (tribe)), the Nez Perce (Nez Perce tribe), and others against the Blackfoot. While the Sinixt never directly fought the Blackfoot as a group, it is very likely that individual Sinixt joined their Salishan neighbours (and the Ktunaxa) in war parties and buffalo hunts to the Western Plains. Reyes says they had ongoing skirmishes with the Blackfoot, from whom, according to him, they stole horses. Reyes 2002, p. 8.
