Donald’s Market


Sto:lō is the First Nations Halqemeylem word for the Fraser River. Here at River Market it is the title of an enlarged contour map that graphically interprets New Westminster and the adjoining regions. The lines represent the undulating landscape and serpentine flow of the river while historically referencing a time that precedes the built environment and human habitation.

Sto:lō echoes the surrounding landscape that was formed by the forces of nature over the course of tens of thousands of years.  The Fraser River, which continues to shape the land, has been the major contributor to the food resource, industry and transportation of the region. Here from the banks of the river at New Westminster we see the Fraser nearing the completion of its 1,375 km journey from its source near Mt. Robson in the Rocky Mountains.
