RRC Polytechnic recently celebrated the official opening of the Roundhouse Auditorium at Manitou a bi Bii daziigae. The new space features a Morning Star design embedded in the floor which was created by Anishinaabe/Nêhiyaw/British artist KC Adams. The morning star pattern is frequently used in star blankets from the Nakota, Lakota, and Dakota nations, and in Adams’ work, it overlaps with the medicine wheel motif with four colours pointing in four directions. “We often incorporate the future as part of our reality, thinking seven generations ahead,” said Adams. “How we move and how we navigate now affects the future.” The 210-seat space is sound-proof, ventilated for the use of traditional medicines, and features a panoramic projector. It will be used for events, ceremonies, and collaborative learning. RRC Polytech Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
