Western Canada

This region has only been known to Europeans for the last 200 years. In fact, the sons of the French explorer La Vérendrye did not set eyes on the Rocky Mountains until the end of the 18th century, and England's George Vancouver only explored the Pacific coast and Columbia River in the last decade of the same century. White settlement of the region is even more recent, going back just over 100 years in Alberta, which has existed as a province for only 91 years. Native peoples have inhabited this territory for at least 11,000 years, but never in large numbers; there were only 220,000 of them in all of Canada when explorer Jacques Cartier arrived in 1534.
