The Chinlac Massacre in the 1780s was fought between two groups of Natives at a camp near the junction of the Stuart and Nechako rivers in the Vanderhoof forest district. The menfolk of the campsite were out hunting while the women and children were slaughtered by the other tribe’s warriors. Vegetation is said not to grow here, and the site is said to harbor bad spirits and eerie feelings. The place can only be accessed by boat or seaplane.
