The Seattle Department of Con- struction and Land Use (DCLU) hopes to speed the sequence of events affecting developments from Terminal 18 on Harbor Island to Terminal 107 on the west bank of the Duwamish River. Citing "considerable public testi- mony," the DCLU instructed the Port of Seattle to designate a place at T-107 where an Indian longhouse and cultural center could be built. Besides strong support from West Seattle organizations and individu- als for a Ionghouse and cultural center at T-107, the DCLU also is basing its requirement upon action taken by the City Council last Janu- ary. The City Council included a con- dition for its approval of the street vacations near Terminal 105 that By Jesse Woldman HERALD-NEWS Building airplanes is not gener- ally a summer activity for high school students. But this summer, a group of local teens is doing just that. As part of the King County- sponsored Opportunity Skyway program, 13 students from Ever- green High School are construct- ing a two-seat RANS Coyote air- plane at Boeing Field. The program began with a five- day academy at King County International Airport, where the students built a rocket and met stated: "The city supports the Port's commitment to provide space for a longhouse and cultural center at the public access site at Terminal 107." FOR CENTURIES, the Duwamish Indians had a village called Hah Ah Poos at what is now known as Terminal 107. Artifacts dating back to 600 A.D. were unearthed there in 1980. Archeologists found little evi- dence of anyone living at Hah Ah Poos since about 1800, when small- pox decimated the native popula- tion. The DCLU cannot require that the facilities be exclusively for the Duwamish Tribe, but simply Native American, said Deborah Stuart. She is the DCLU land-use planner who is managing the project. That's partly because the Duwamish are not officially recog- nized as a tribe by the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs. - See LONGHOUSE, page 2 with first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.' Students began building the air- plane June 30 and have been working on it ever since. They arc paid hourly for their efforts through King County Work Training. After the program is completed, the students will also receive half a school credit in either math or science. Hoangvien Tu, 16, is one of the students involved in the program.
