Esta foto está hecha en la localidad de Moricetown, en el norte de la Columbia Británica y el rio que se ve es el Bulkley. Hecha con varias tomas a diferentes exposiciones.

Esta zona es una reserva aborigen y la mayoría de su población es de origen autóctono, las Primeras Naciones como le llaman eufemísticamente allí a los indios, sin que eso quiera decir que les reconozcan muchos derechos a pesar de ello. La población autóctona en esta zona no es desdeñable y es fácil ver pueblos con sus símbolos (totems y otros).
