Notes: Longhouse Waap Galts’ap: A House for the Community tells the positive story of how a new longhouse has helped revitalize education for First Nations students at Northwest Community College, located in Terrace, British Columbia. Employing a rich tapestry of on-site footage taken from the longhouse opening, and featuring interviews with the architect, college president, and many of the First Nations artists who were involved in the project, the video demonstrates that the longhouse is a centre for teaching—not only First Nations cultures, but western cultures as well. The building was designed by Dr. Nancy Mackin, a Nisga’a-adopted architect who has designed several longhouses, both in Canada and in Norway.
