Simon Fraser and his crew meet Nlaka’pamux in Lytton in June 1808, the first European travellers to do so. Nlaka'pamux oral history states that: Nlaka’pamux welcome Simon Fraser and share food, smoke, and ceremony; Simon Fraser refuses the Nlaka’pamux host’s offer of roast fish and requests they give him their dog for meat instead, to their dismay; and Simon Fraser physically violates local Nlaka’pamux women bathing in the river, taking advantage of the fact that they mistake him for a transformer.
