Welcome to Tse’k’wa

Home to the Dane-zaa for over 12,500 years.

Welcome to Tse’k’wa—gathering place of the Dane-zaa for over 12,500 years. This is a place of power and wonder, where healing, learning, and understanding go hand in hand.

Tse’k’wa is a Chqde Wuujo—a good place—where we gather, preserve, and celebrate Dane-ẕaa language, culture, and heritage. A place where old stories and new teachings meet.

Where Dane-zaa culture is thriving.

Tse’k’wa, which means “Rock House” in Dane-zaa/Beaver language, is a sacred place our ancestors have visited for generations. Building on this heritage as a gathering space, our outdoor spaces and interpretive centre bring together all kinds of people for programming, cultural learnings, and community gatherings.

OPEN for self-guided tours Monday to Sunday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Visit Tse’k’wa and experience:

A sacred and historic site.

The significance of Tse’k’wa is complex, taking on a different meaning for everyone, but we can all agree: Tse’k’wa is Chqde Wuujo, a good place.

The artifacts found at this site are evidence of our ancestors’ activities and continuity of our culture dating back thousands of years. The unique paths of original First Nations inhabitants, the archaeologists who studied the site, and the modern stewards all intersect at this sacred place.
