Coquitlam River
Coquitlam River flows from Coquitlam Lake, through New Westminster, and into the Fraser, just west of Pitt River. It draws its name, along with other features that bear the same, from the Anglicization of Kwikwetlem: the people who have inhabited the river and surrounding region continuously for thousands of years.1 The Kwikwetlem First Nation is now part of the larger Stó:lō group; Kwikwetlem is Halkomelem for red fish up the river.2
