tukʷtniɬxʷ – tule mat house Indigenizing the Built Environment

I spent 4 days on geothermal reconstructed earth at UBC Okanagan inside the woven walls of Shawn Brigman PHD’s Tule Mat Lodge. It is the exact image I received when I listened to her on digitized audio returned from Wendy Wickwire’s early research.

I listened to her story within these walls. Heard her sing songs like this one. I was transported to a time before this time, a world more like the one inside these woven walls.
