Many Tsek Hot Springs visitors met Alma & Shadow in summer 2014. On weekends, Alma and Shadow frequently led Indigenous Art Workshops for guests. Tsek visitors got the opportunity to create Indigenous art, such as drums, dreamcatchers, jewelry, or do beading and painting under the guidance of Alma and Shadow.
In 2015, the Indigenous Work Force has recruited new artists to share their talents with Tsek campers. Thus the Artist In Residence Program was born – to teach visitors about Indigenous art. The first artist of 2015 is Travis from the nearby village of Skatin. Weekends in May feature Travis sharing his skills making dream catchers, painting, beading and drum making. Other local Indigenous artists will be present throughout the summer offering Indigenous arts & crafts, story telling, guided (medicine) walks, and singing and dancing.
There are so many reasons to visit Tsek Hot Springs and the list keeps growing. 2015 is a year of big changes at Tsek. Many decks and foundations have been replaced and some new hot tubs will be added, campsites and toilets will be upgraded to make your experience more enjoyable. 2Km of trails have been cleared within the Tsek footprint at the north and south end of the campsite and along the old road for a beautiful loop trail. Afterwards head down to the nearby villages of Skatin and Sachteen to see if you can grab a burger or pizza from “take-out in the boonies” or the “pitstop cafe”.
