Foster storytelling skills and creative play with this plush longhouse, designed by Tsimshian artist Bill Helin. For many Indigenous communities, wood longhouses have historically been, and still are, important places for ceremonies, meetings and gatherings. This 10” longhouse is embroidered with Northwest Coast formline designs, and pairs perfectly with Bill Helin’s finger puppets (sold separately) or any other animal friends. Thanks to its exterior handle, detachable roof and stuffy-sized doors, it can also be used to store and carry favourite toys.Show More
Bill Helin (Welaaxam Yout) was born in the Northwest Coast community of Prince Rupert, BC. Growing up, Bill spent countless hours listening to his grandmother as she taught him the many legends and songs of the Tsimshian people. Through his books and plush toys, he has captured the essence of these legends and helped introduce his cultures to a new generation of learners.
