MOUNT CURRIE HEART OF A PEOPLE
Mount Currie is the heart of the Mount Currie Reserve of the Lil’wat group of the Stl’atl’lmx Nation and has been home to the Lil’wat for thousands of years. Mount Currie was named after Scottish settler John Currie. Failing to make his fortune as a gold seeker in California and the Cariboo, he turned to ranching and finally settled near Pemberton with his First Nations Lillooet wife in 1885.

Three Fun Facts about Mount Currie
The area abounds with rock petroglyphs dating back 2,500 years ago. During a road construction project in 2001, a 7,400-year-old tool was discovered.
Some of the community’s houses were built around 1817 of dovetailed logs with the cracks between sealed with wattle – a construction so solid they've outlasted many of the modern homes.
