Name Notes: Tyee is the Chinook Jargon word for "chief" or "leader" (Hyas Tyee means literally "big/important chief" but is often translated as "king"). But in this area, near Campbell River, there is a specific further meaning - here "Tyee" also refers to large sockeye (?) salmon (what Americans call "king salmon").
