Welcome to the Kootenays, affectionately known as The Koots. As in, “Where do you live?” “In The Koots.” Kootenay is the anglicized name for the local First Nations people who live in British Columbia and Montana/Idaho. Fun fact: the American spelling of the Kootenay River, which winds through both countries, has an i on the end instead: Kootenai.
