Two earthquakes rattled British Columbia late Thursday and early Friday morning, but they didn't cause any damage. The first quake, which measured 4.2 ML, struck just south of the border in Idaho around 10:43 p.m PT Thursday. It was felt in the Kootenay communities of Castlegar and Creston. It was one of three small quakes in the area since Thursday night, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The second quake, which was measured as 6.1 ML by Earthquakes Canada (M6.2 by the USGS) struck in the ocean just off the southern tip of Haida Gwaii at 6:56 a.m. PT Friday. The quake was felt on Haida Gwaii and along the North Coast, but there was no damage reported and no tsunami warning was issued. The Haida Gwaii earthquake was near the junction of three of the earth's tectonic plates, where earthquakes are common. As recently as Tuesday, a 3.6 ML earthquake was reported in the same region.

Interesting stuff there.
I bought some handmade Bark bookmarks in Hawaii. I framed them as Art. They kind of resemble our Native Indian Art here in BC.
I didn't know about this connection but it all mikes sense.
A Tlingit legend very aptly describes how the first proto Polynesians came to Canada:
"There is an old story that says how some strange people came from the western ocean. Among them were two sisters. They landed on Dall Island in Southeastern Alaska. There the sisters met and married men whose people were coming down the rivers from interior North America. One sister-went with her family to Haida-gwaii or the Queen Charlotte Islands. Her children grew and multiplied into the Haida Nation. The other sister went with her family to Prince of Wales Island. She became the ancestress or Mother of the Tlingit Nation." (The Proud Chilkat by Brendan and Lauri Larson. 1977.)
