Description

Using a collection of found objects, teams of Architectural Technology students constructed representational models of half of a hearth. Paired with another model by a different team, the constructions were meant to symbolize Indigenous families coming together inside the traditional long house. The goal of this all-school project was to help our students and faculty gain a better understanding of the Truth and Reconciliation process and have an appreciation for what was on our HMC lands prior to colonization.
