Flyback Fridays - Nick Andrews 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 Nick Andrews in 2003. The interviewers were Jeanette Helmer and Helen Purden who recorded conversations with several local elders in 2003. In this excerpt Nick remembers going to residential school in Mission B.C., going to the movies in Pemberton, horse races and living off the land.  Watch it here.
