Something wonderful about Coquitlam

Coquitlam has a long, fascinating history that is believed to have begun at least 9,000 years ago with the occupation of the Coast Salish people. The name Kwikwetlem (Coquitlam in English), has its origins in the Salish term "kʷikʷəƛ̓əm," which means "red fish up the river." This is likely a nod to the fact that Coquitlam sits on the Fraser and Pitt Rivers.
