Flyback Fridays - Morgan Miller 2003 - excerpt 1

Welcome to Flyback Fridays - a glimpse into Pemberton’s past! This season we will bring you stories and videos from Tea & Tales and our video archives over the last decade that highlight Pioneer life and the resiliency of early settlers and First Nations.  We will also share videos and stories that show how local residents have responded to emergencies and challenges in the past, illustrating the power of community ties through all kinds of difficulties – yesterday and today.

This is an excerpt from an interview with Morgan Miller in 2003. The interviewers were Jeanette Helmer and Helen Purden who recorded conversations with several local elders in 2003. Morgan's father was W.M. Miller, one of Pemberton's earliest settlers. In this excerpt Morgan remembers some very long walks into the mountains to Goat Meadows and Chilcotlin country. Morgan also recounts his father's 2000 mile trek down the Yukon River from Dawson City Yukon to Nome Alaska.  Watch it here.
