Traditional village at Soda Creek

The Xatsull Heritage Village flanks the Fraser River a few miles north of Williams Lake.

A few weeks ago, my brother and I visited this place, following the narrow road that leads steeply down from the highway.

As well as teepees and a large central shelter, pit houses, both old and new, can be seen, along with a traditional sweat lodge roofed with cedar boughs. This fascinating town gives a glimpse of how Shuswap people lived before.
