Longhouse Tours & Rentals


The NEC's longhouse was built in 1985 with the design concept based on West Coast philosophy that encompasses traditional values. The totem pole was carved by the well-known Northwest Coast Carver, Norman Tait. Community member gathered at the pole raising ceremony, which signifies the house of learning for Indigenous learners in Metro Vancouver.

You’re invited to join us for a Longhouse tour and learn about what NEC has to offer Indigenous learners in Metro Vancouver.
