Birch Bay History the Semiahmoos

The Semiahmoos are now located in British Columbia, Canada. At one time their territory extended to the northern part of Birch Bay. The Semiahmoos maintained a signal fire on high ground above what is now Birch Bay Village. When the Hiada came down from the north to raid the area, the Semiahmoos would send up smoke to warn other natives of the Hiada approach.
It is interesting to note that Captain Picket met his future wife, Morning Mist, on Semiahmoo Spit. She was a Haida who was a captive of the Semiahoo.
