Where did the name 'Sahali' come from?
The neighbourhood's name derives from the word sahali, a local version of the Chinook Jargon word usually seen as saghalie in published lexicons of the Jargon. Its basic meaning is 'up' or 'above' but in this context meaning 'high ground'. Sahali is situated on high ground overlooking the valley of the North and South Thompson Rivers. The name Kamloops means the meeting of two rivers.
