PÎYÊSÎW WÂSKÂHIKAN | Thunderbird House

PÎYÊSÎW WÂSKÂHIKAN (Thunderbird House) is our first dedicated Indigenous space that is built for ceremony and gatherings.

From the design, to its service plan, to the classes and programs being offered, this space is for the community.  We hope that the space is welcoming and accessible for all customers. As a community-led library system, PÎYÊSÎW WÂSKÂHIKAN will work with local Elders and Knowledge Keepers, and Indigenous organizations to offer programming that is welcoming to Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.



When asked what community would like to see in this space, we consistently heard:

  • Language programming
  • Cultural and land-based teachings
  • Intergenerational programming

While programming and events will occur in the space, we also want it to be an urban refuge for people to be able to come smudge and have a quiet place to reflect.
