|Nature and Culture||Tsek Hot Springs remains the sacred location of the In-SHUCK-ch (in-chuck-sh) and St’at’imc (stat-lee-um) people of British Columbia. At Tsek Hot Springs, the nkúkwtsa (n-kook-shta) – the down-river St’at’imc people – established a permanent village of (s7)ístken (eesh-kin) pit houses and plank houses along the banks of the Lillooet River and cut-out trails through the nearby forests to hunting grounds and neighbouring villages.
Tsek’s hot and cold springs became the most important spiritual site in the lower Lillooet River Valley for the physical and spiritual wellness of the hot mineral water.
Please respect the roped off Registered Archaeological Sites at the Tsek campground.
