“The new, 26,000-square-foot Nisqually Tribal Center is set to be dedicated at 10 a.m. Friday.
The building, which was built opposite the tribe’s previous center, will house most of the governmental services provided to tribal members. Tribal history, tradition and culture are incorporated into the building’s design, including a roof line that reflects native salmon, a cultural icon for the Nisquallys.
“Fully 20 percent of the project was completed by Native American-owned enterprises,” Nisqually Chair Cynthia Iyall said in a statement.
The building was designed by Womer & Associates of Spokane and the general contractor was Korsmo Construction of Tacoma.
