A centuries-old cave at Charlie Lake has been designated a national historic site by Parks Canada.

The cave, known formally as Tse’K’wa, was one of seven designations announced on Friday to mark the 100th anniversary of the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada.

“Tse’K’wa is an exceptional archaeological site in North America,” Parks Canada said.

“It has provided an understanding of human settlement and environmental change from the last glacial period (12,500 years ago) to 1,000 years ago. This site is in the traditional territory of the Dane-zaa First Nations, who maintain stewardship of the site and consider it a spiritual place.”
