TÊte Jaune Cache

Tête Jaune Cache is an unincorporated area within the Regional District of Fraser Fort George. It has a population of about 500 people and is located at the intersection of Yellowhead Highways 5 and 16, about 18 kilometres north of Valemount. Situated at the confluence of the McLennan and Fraser Rivers, residents and visitors here have ample opportunities for fishing, canoeing and white-water rafting and kayaking. In winter, residents enjoy snowmobiling, skiing and snowshoeing. As in other Robson Valley communities this small community is built on the security and hospitality of good friends and neighbours.

Healthcare services are provided in Valemount, and children from Tête Jaune Cache take the school bus to Valemount for both elementary and high school.

Tête Jaune Cache has significant historical importance. The Secwepemp First Nation had an established village here, and took advantage of the abundance of salmon and wild berries. Later it was discovered by Pierre Bostonais, the blond explorer from whom the community got today's name. With the construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway this became a prosperous community and the head of navigation for paddle steamers on the Fraser River.
