Shoal Lake Welcomes Dalhousie Delegation

The Shoal Lake First Nation has a new classroom.


About 12 architecture students from Dalhousie University in Halifax helped them build it.


The Dalhousie delegation left yesterday after spending about a week on the reserve helping to design and build the structure.


Raime Whitecap, the band’s economic development officer, is hoping the visit will spur some young band members to go into architecture.


The building isn’t quite finished. The band hopes to complete it today.


Whitecap says the visitors learned a lot about Cree culture during their stay — including learning how to make bannock.
