Currently, the Xatśūll Heritage Village is being used as a cultural tourism site during the summer, as well as for community use during the off seasons for traditional ceremonies, gatherings and activities such as fishing. With funding from the Government of Canada's Community Adjustment Fund, delivered by Northern Development, the Soda Creek Indian Band was able make significant enhancements to this important First Nations cultural tourism asset in the Cariboo.
Under this project, a new viewpoint overlooking the heritage site was constructed that extended the existing safety fence along the Fraser River, and a new traditionally constructed pit house was built at the site that tourists can now book for a unique overnight accommodation experience. Additionally, a covered meeting area with picnic tables that can be used by both community members and visitors to the site was constructed.
With all of the improvements to the area, guests now really achieve an authentic experience of what it is like to visit a traditional Xatśūll village many years ago.
