The building design is based on a structure from Spirit Lake on the Kenai Peninsula.  The building was opened and celebrated with a traditional style potlach event on Jan. 21, 2011.  An Athabascan potlach of this scale had not taken place in the Anchorage area since 1939.   We are pleased to share this beautiful building with you!
