Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort lies in the traditional home lands of the Ktunaxa (pronounced ‘K-too-nah-ha’) people. Since time immemorial the Ktunaxa people have utilized this site as a place for healing. After battle, warriors would soak in the spirit waters (nupika wu’u) to ease the wounds sustained in the fight to defend this beautiful territory. Those living with other ailments such as arthritis would utilize the hot pool to find some relief to their pain.
