LAND VISIONING WORKSHOP

OVERVIEW

This land-based visioning exercise was designed to better understand the relationship between our future cultural workshop and museum and the landscape that it will live in. PI/KHS staff and Board of Elders gathered at the future location of the new cultural campus to consider the importance of building this new cultural campus from a strong foundation of language and land. Questions asked of the group during the workshop included:  

  • What do you know about this piece of land? How does it change throughout the seasons? Is there a lot of snow drifting in the winter? How high does the water go in the spring and summer?  

  • Where should we place the buildings and surrounding infrastructure? 

  • Where should outdoor cultural activities take place? 

  • How do we enter the site? Where should the parking lot be?

  • How do we revegetate the site once construction is finished? What do you recommend?
