Bohdana Chiupka-Innes is a Moose Cree from Moose Cree First Nation. Bohdana’s passion to learn more about Indigenous Architecture found her applying to the McEwen School of Architecture. “Learning about Indigenous Architecture at Laurentian University and how architecture can be a way to express our culture through built form has become a passion of mine. I hope to work with Indigenous communities across Turtle Island, bringing their vision and culture to life through architecture. Learning the history of our people is important, and I see Architecture as a way for our people to heal by connecting back to teaching and traditions through building design.”
