A Sacred Place A Sacred Place

FIRST PEOPLES HOUSE—A SPECIAL CAMPUS SPACE to support Aboriginal students and their fundamental beliefs and values—has reached the design stage, with consultation meetings set for November.

The design reflects traditional Coast and Straits Salish cedar longhouses and is based on advice offered to a university task force by Aboriginal leaders, faculty, staff and students. The 1,130 square-metre house would be located near the University Centre, between the Clearihue and Cornett buildings. The university is seeking private funding for the estimated cost of construction, $5.5 million, and an art budget of approximately $1 million.

Consultation sessions will be held at the Student Union Building (Michelle Pujol Room) on Nov. 8 from 2 pm to 4 pm, and Nov. 18 from 4 pm to 7 pm.
