About Chiwid

Chiwid was a Tsilhqot’in woman, said to have shamanistic powers, who spent most of her adult life "living out" in the hills and forests around Williams Lake, BC.

Chiwid is the story of this remarkable woman told in the vibrant voices of Chilcotin oldtimers, both native and non–native.

Chiwid is number 2 in the Transmontanus series.
