Jack Brown is a resident of Surrey. He has been a teacher in Surrey for 35 years. During 1970–71 he took a year off teaching to complete a Masters Degree in Arts with a concentration in Geography. As part of his Masters program he wrote an unpublished Sociology Anthropology paper titled The Semiahmoo People. This web site is based on that paper. This was an original research paper based on original source documentation and interviews with original settlers or their descendants.
Since the initial publication of The Semiahmoo People additional pages have been added based on historic research.
The Semiahmoo People have a very colourful history and a heritage to be proud of. I hope that this presentation will contribute to the preservation of some of that history and heritage.
