Elders of the original aboriginal tribe Ktunaxa offer teaching of their cultural heritage during Tipi Camp on Pilot Peninsula. Their people had existed in the area dating back over 8,000 years and evidence remains in petroglyphs, arrowheads and artifacts seen and collection throughout the lake and surrounding woods.
In the 1880's, the draw of wealth and riches found in the hills of British Columbias interior brought prospectors in search of gold passing through the area. These Europeans and Americans began to develop modes of transportation to reach the various areas by rail, paddle wheeler and horse. Evidence of their struggles and successes are everywhere in the Kootneys including rundown miner shacks and sunken paddle wheelers. However, when luck ran thin, settlers had to reinvent their fortunes from the land. Orhcardists became a new generation of prosperous industry and culture.
