Sheesh'kan (Pit Houses)
A pit house is an earth and timber structure that usually housed up to 20 people. Some pit houses had two entrances: one on ground level, and one in the roof (which also let out smoke from cooking fires).
Lillooet's replica pit house, built by the T'it'q'et, is set 2.5m/8ft into the ground and is approximately 6m/20ft wide with a roof of logs and sod. In addition to tours, the pit house is also used for cultural events.
