Tiffany Shaw-Collinge

Architectural Engagements with Indigenous People

Manasc Isaac’s work is to heighten the visibility of place for Indigenous people through our collaborative approach of working to create buildings with community rather than for the community. We approach building design through the ethos of the Seven Grandfather Teachings maintaining a holistic view through out the entirety of the project. We will present urban and rural projects within and near by Edmonton, Alberta, Canada such as Kihciy Askiy/Sacred Earth Development, Métis Crossing’s Gathering Centre and Kehewin Cree Nation’s Kindergarten to Grade 12 School.
