Last dwelling

Chief Spokan Garry was born in 1811 and educated at a fur trading center in Canada. He returned to his tribe and operated a school at what is now Drumheller Springs Park, the next stop on this tour. He became a victim of theft and was burned off his land, dying at his last dwelling in the Indian Canyon area near a marker along a trail west of downtown, according to this marker.
