The all-volunteer STAHS Board of Directors (Board) made real progress toward their primary goal to build the Siletz Tribal Cultural Center on Government Hill in Siletz.
The Siletz Tribal Cultural Center will be a 20,000 square foot three story building constructed on top of Government Hill adjacent to the Community Center and across the street from the Veterans Memorial.
The scale of the Cultural Center will match the scale of the Community Center. The day-lighted basement will house the repository and archives. The main floor will include museum/visitor space and a replica of the cedar plank dance house down by the Siletz River. The dance house space will be the first spot tour visitors will see. The attic space will include a classroom and research space.
We have now reached Phase II of the Siletz Tribal Cultural Center. Phase I was the design and construction of the future studio space cultural classes built to serve the immediate need for a “repository” to store cultural collections and archives until the Cultural Center is built.
