On 08 May 2011, Neskie Manuel went camping at his family camp site.
He went missing. His body was discovered on 25 June 2011 several
kilometers down river.
Neskie was an OpenStreetMap contributor, and started mapping in April
2009, mapping mostly near Chase, British Columbia, Canada.
He was active in several communities, with an interest in Free
Software / Open Source, OpenStreetMap, community radio, indigenous
languages, cycling, on-line communities and First Nations.
Some of his friends describe him as, popular and well known in his
community, as well as having a beaming smile.
I enjoyed learning more about Neskie's life and interests from his
friends and colleagues in their video tribute to him.
