Kleena Kleene

KLEENA KLEENE, 180 km west of WILLIAMS LAKE in the CHILCOTIN, is a ranching (see CATTLE INDUSTRY) district on the Klinaklini R, which flows into KNIGHT INLET. The first residents, Pat McClinchy, Frank Render and Sam Colwell, arrived in the early 1900s. James Mackill opened a resort at nearby One Eye Lk in 1927. Today the Brink and Dowling ranches are located here. The name comes from a Kwakwala word for "EULACHON grease."
