Recognition Award

Sabina Hill with Mark Preston

The Vancouver Native Housing Society recognized Sabina's contribution to the re-design and transformation of Skwachays Lodge into Canada's first boutique Aboriginal Arts Hotel when they presented her with the Longhouse award which she also designed.

Sabina was inspired by the traditional Longhouse. Skwachays Lodge Aboriginal Hotel and Gallery provides a home for its guests along with its resident artists. It is a gathering place, which fosters a sense of community in the same way the Longhouse does.

The Eagle represents friendship and the Human figure represents people working together for a common cause. These motifs symbolize the relationship between artists and designers who came together collectively in friendship to transform the Skwachays Lodge into Canada's first Boutique Aboriginal Arts Hotel & Gallery.
