Abstract: Indigenous culture is rich and vibrant all across Mother Earth; more commonly known as North America, and sadly is rarely reflected in the built environment of their communities. This thesis seeks to answer the question: How can the culture of the Haudenosaunee be reflected within their built environment to align with the needs of the community? Through the exploration of community engagement and case studies it was proven designs in Indigenous communities should be inspired by the culture’s history and traditions while reflecting the community within the 21st century. Concepts, meanings, and teachings from Indigenous culture have the ability to influence a 21st century building. Through the exploration of wampum belts, Haudenosaunee longhouse, and longhouse village, a proposed multi-generational housing project demonstrates how the Haudenosaunee culture can in fact be reflected within the built environment to align with the needs of the community
