Springs heated by the Earth hold ancient medicine long-known to Indigenous people in British Columbia.

The nupika wu’u, or hot mineral waters, at Ainsworth Hotsprings have always been a therapeutic joy to the Ktunaxa and are now owned and shared with the public by Yaqan Nukiy, the Lower Kootenay Band of Creston, BC. In Nisga’a Territory, drive through the lava beds in Nass Valley to a culturally significant, designated heritage site at Aiyansh Hotsprings, the dwelling place of Sbi Nax-nok-, a supernatural being.
