The Skeena, "river of mists," makes a major cleft through the Coast Mountains. To Coastal Tsimshian Indians and Interior tribes it was vital to trade and travel. In later years, Port Essington, near the river's mouth, became the main port of this swift, treacherous waterway - a route serving pioneers from the 1860s to 1914 when the railway was built.
