Tsek has been part of the traditional territory of the In-SHUCK-ch people since the beginning.
Tsek is a spiritual and cultural site. Its purpose since time out of mind is to heal the spirit and body of the people. When the Transformers were travelling the world to restore order they not only changed the landscape they also transformed many worthy people to serve their people for eternity. Thus, the salmon, deer, cedar trees and many other useful creatures and beings were created that our people learned to depend upon. When they came through this area, they came upon a couple that was serving the good of their people and decided to transform them so they were able to support their people for eternity. When asked, the couple agreed under the condition that they could be together forever. Thus, the transformers changed them into two springs – one hot, one cold - running next to each other and healing the spirit and the body of their people for generations to come. People today still believe in the healing powers of Tsek. They come to heal their bodies, they come to lift their spirits, especially before hunting & fishing for the community, they come to train as medicine people and chiefs, couples come to commit to each other, they come to hold ceremonies and they come for many more reasons.
Tsek is located in southwestern British Columbia within the traditional territory of the St’at’imc People. Tsek sits on the Lower Lillooet River which flows south within the Coast Mountains and empties into the north end of Harrison Lake.
