We are very pleased to offer you a unique UBC experience by hosting the conference lunch on Tuesday, May 31st from 12:30 – 2:15 pm in the St-Wet-Tan, the Great Hall of the First Nations Longhouse.
Sty-Wet-Tan, the Great Hall of the First Nations Longhouse at UBC, is a dramatic
3,000 square foot multi-purpose hall. Among its outstanding architectural features
are four house posts and two supporting roof beams carved by noted Northwest
Coast artists. It contains a spring dance floor, a large stage area and is adjoined by a
fully equipped kitchen. An outdoor cedar deck, situated beneath huge trees, is the
ideal place for a memorable dining experience.
The Sty-Wet-Tan Hall has four Houseposts, which support the Longhouse structure; these house posts are located at the southeast entrance, southwest entrance, the northwest corner, and the north east corner of the Great hall. The importance of these posts, and the other forms of visual artistic expression is to announce the different First Nations people that exist, and the different identities of the University of British Columbia. Learn about the Sty-Wet-Tan Hall Houseposts.
We are very excited to have Denise Sparrow, owner of Salishan Catering, for our event.
