Blessing learning

Spokane Tribe of Indians member Pat Moses (right) leads drummers in an opening song of blessing at the dedication ceremony for Eastern Washington University's new residence hall, Snyamncut Hall (pronounced sen-yam-en-sut) Tuesday afternoon.

Snyamncut is the Spokane Salish word for place of gathering, with the connotation of it being a special place of emotional attachment – a place of the heart, and the state-of-the-art hall that opened this fall will house more than 350 students in double and triple rooms as well as serving as the hub of the residential district, providing comfortable study and social spaces as well and high-tech amenities.
