Flyback Fridays - Chief Leonard Andrew 2014 - Memories of the Railway - short version

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 a short excerpt from Chief Leonard Andrew's presentation at Tea & Tales in 2014. In this excerpt Leonard shares some of his memories about the railroad, the long travel required by railroad to Ottawa by area Chiefs (Thevarge) and the changes that have come since the railroad was built in 1914.  Watch it here.
