Paleo-Indians used hot springs in North American for cooking, and for refuge and respite. Hot springs were neutral zones where members of warring nations would bathe together in peace. Native Americans have a history with every major hot spring in what is now the United States. California hot springs, like at the Geysers in the Napa area, were important and sacred areas.
