Canada, NB, Under One Sky invest $19M to create net zero carbon Indigenous cultural centre

Over $19M in combined funding and in-kind donations have been provided by the Government of Canada, Government of New Brunswick, and the Under One Sky Monoqonuwick-Neoteetg Mosigisig, Inc to construct a net zero carbon Indigenous longhouse and cultural Centre in Fredericton, New Brunswick. The Awitgati Longhouse and Cultural Centre will promote Indigenous culture and provide services for all members of the community. The facility will include dedicated space for education, skills, and training, as well as health and wellness, arts & culture, and community building. “To build a first of its kind net-zero longhouse is exciting,” said Under One Sky Executive Director Elder Patsy McKinney, “but the real impact will be for the members of our community, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, who will walk in our doors every single day.”
