It is the 6th Anniversary of the building of the first Duwamish Longhouse since the last one was burned down in West Seattle in 1894 to push the Duwamish off their land. In 1851, there were over 90 Duwamish Longhouses. Opened in 2009, the Longhouse is a traditional cedar post and beam structure designed in the Puget Salish Longhouse style. It houses a Native Art Gallery, Duwamish History Museum, Gift Shop, Duwamish Tribal Offices, and traditional Longhouse. As in ancient times, Longhouse is the site where tribal business is conducted and cultural & educational events are held.

Roger Fernandes is a Native American artist whose work reflects the culture and beliefs of the Puget Salish tribes of the Pacific Northwest Coast. A member of the Lower Elwha S'Klallam Tribe, he was born and raised in Seattle and studied art at the University of Washington.
