Xwi7xwa Memory Project Celebrating The First Nations House of Learning 20th Anniversary on March 14, 2008, the Xwi7xwa Library began a memory project to digitize and provide access to the historical record related to the development of the Longhouse. The project supports the FNHL mandate to make the vast resources of the university more accessible to Aboriginal people and to educate the broader community about Aboriginal perspectives and scholarship.  Memory Projects:  ☼ The Indian Education Newsletter was digitized through a partnership with the University Archives and is now freely available via the UBC Library catalogue, and the Xwi7xwa and Archives websites.

It was pub- lished by The Indian Education Resources Centre under the direction of BCNITA, the British Columbia Native Indian Teachers’ Association. The resources centre, established in 1970, is an early example of collaboration between First Nations First Nations House of Learning Longhouse - Opens May  1993 1985 West Mall ☼  The Story of the Longhouse video documents the construction of the UBC Longhouse and the Opening Ceremonies held in May 1993.
