Mukwa Waakaa’igan Indigenous Centre for Cultural Excellence lauded by World Architecture Festival
The Mukwa Waakaa’igan Indigenous Centre for Cultural Excellence in Sault Ste. Marie is being recognized on the international stage for excellence in architectural design.
Proposed to be completed in 2024, the facility will be a hub for the work of the Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association, which is focused on cataloguing and teaching the history of Canada’s residential school system and envisions the centre as a place for healing, cultural preservation, dialogue, and transformation.
Once complete, the facility will also serve as the new home for the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre archives and Aboriginal Healing Foundation Collection.
