In spite of several hundred years of difficult challenges that include culturally destructive colonial strategies, many Indigenous communities are experiencing a period of self-actualized revitalization whereby “culture” is openly celebrated and outwardly presented. This is apparent through art, language and tradition, all manifested through a number of community facets, including the topic of this session: Environmental design on Indigenous lands. 
 
Many traditional tenets related to architectural design are shared by First Nations; respect for the land, for instance, is common to all indigenous peoples, as are consideration for environmental consequences, traditional land-use planning and architectural design features such as cultural representations through tectonic assemblies that tell a story and contain mnemonics related to the culture from which it emanates. Indeed, a surge of Indigenous-initiated environmental design initiatives has emerged in what is now Canada, much of it as unique planning schemas or architectural typologies brought about by new, or renewed needs. This is design that derives from beyond place and program; it stems directly from cultural consequences.
 
This webinar will be focused on two fronts: A critical look at the colonial impacts on Indigenous environmental design, and a close examination of present-day architecture within the Indigenous landscape.
