Sayéik (Gastineau) Elementary

Sayéik, spirit helper, is in X’áat’ T’áak (Bear Creek) watershed, best of our local schools for studies of deer habitat. The deep, headward-cutting canyons of little Bear Creek now finger into deltaic deposits of Shgóonaa Héenak’u (Lawson Creek)  from a time of higher sea level when this much bigger stream flowed out through today’s X’áat’ T’áak, beside the island (downtown Douglas) and Anax Yaa Andagan Yé. where sun’ rays hit first (Douglas Boat Hbr).
