The Indigenous Architecture Monday Lecture Series continues on Nov. 15 from 5:30 - 6:45 p.m. in the auditorium of George Pearl Hall, with Leonie Sandercock, planning professor, author and documentary filmmaker from the University of British Columbia, who presents a southwest documentary premier of "Finding Our Way—Beyond Canada's Apartheid." The event is preceded by a meet the speaker, booksigning and refreshments at 4:45 p.m. The lecture and reception are free and open to the public.
"Finding Our Way" profiles the voices of a people dispossessed, deep historic wounds, and still unresolved conflict between indigenous people, Canadian governments and industry. It's a story of the struggles of two First Nations in the Carrier territory of north central British Columbia, Canada, for land and sovereignty, for healing and revitalization. It explores the conflicts, co-existence and collaborations of the Indigenous and Western European worldviews and its impact in placemaking.
Sandercock is a leading authority on cultural diversity, participatory planning and the urban form.
This installment is co-sponsored by the Community & Regional Planning Program.
