It's thought to have been occupied by the ancestors of the Dunne-Za/Danne Zaa people. Several stone artifacts and animal remains such as bison, snowshoe hare, large hare, ground squirrel and fish have been found.

Tribal Chief Liz Logan of the Treaty Eight Tribal Association says the first priority is to restore the caves. However, she also says the three First Nations hope to turn them into a heritage site for the public.

“Although our immediate goal is to restore and protect the site, which has suffered from vandalism, the three First Nations hope to preserve, enhance and share this remarkable heritage site with the public by offering interpretive and educational programs that promote awareness of the rich culture and history in the region,” said Logan.

The public is asked to avoid visiting the site while it's being restored, unless they have written permission.
