Include indigenous names on welcome signs, Sinixt say

A representative of the Sinixt First Nation says local communities should add indigenous place names to their welcome signs.

Shelly Boyd, the Arrow Lakes facilitator for the Colville Confederated Tribes, made the suggestion in a presentation to Nelson city council today.

Boyd says it’s already being done on signs throughout the Flathead reservation in Montana.

Nelson was known to the Sinixt as kaia’mElEp, which means “dead trees.”
