Chilkoot Indian Association Campus

When the Chilkoot Indian Association acquired a new piece of property in downtown Haines, they secured MRV’s services to develop a new campus master plan and design their first building. The campus master plan creates a vision to help celebrate the uniqueness of the Chilkoot. With a park-like setting, the campus will welcome locals and visitors to experience the Chilkoot story via a cultural museum, a gathering circle, carving shed, and interpretive trails.

The first campus building is a 7,000-square-foot administration building that will provide a vital link between the Chilkoot community and support services. With cedar plank siding, glass sun walls, and a large gathering space, the administration building reinterprets the language of a tradition longhouse.
