Kahkewistahaw First Nation – Governance Facility Graphics

Kahkewistahaw First Nation were building their new governance facility and needed an interior graphics package to give visitors a visual depiction of their land and heritage. Their architectural firm contacted me and we developed the plan for delivery together.

The key image was built using a composite photograph of the nearby river valley and rendered in a soft focus to highlight the colours of the land and sky. The iconography was developed through the usage of historical region specific imagery of Indigenous regalia. These were accompanied with contour images of circling eagles – the namesake of KFN and the literal meaning of Kahkewistahaw (eagle flying in a circle).

The deliverables for this project included – first and second floor wall coverings, corporate meeting room window glazing, custom meeting room table graphic, and exterior wayfinding signage.

This project was done in partnership with aodbt architects.
