Book Launch: Reclaiming Indigenous Planning
November 15, 2013
Please join us at 2 p.m. on Friday, November 15 on the ground floor of Murray Library (3 Campus Drive) at the University of Saskatchewan for the launch of the book, Reclaiming Indigenous Planning, edited by Ryan Walker (professor, Geography and Planning), Ted Jojola, and David Natcher and published by McGill-Queen’s University Press.
As part of the program, we are pleased to be able to host Dr. Ted Jojola from the University of New Mexico who will talk about Indigenous Planning, which is both an approach to community planning and an ideological movement transforming planning practice internationally.
Reclaiming Indigenous Planning, co-edited by Ryan Walker, Ted Jojola, and David Natcher, brings together the perspectives of Indigenous and non-Indigenous community planning scholars and practitioners from Canada, USA, New Zealand, and Australia. With examples from the Canadian Arctic to the Australian desert, and the cities, towns, reserves and reservations in between, contributors engage topics including Indigenous mobilization and resistance, awareness-raising and seven-generations visioning, Indigenous participation in community planning processes, and forms of governance.
Ryan Walker is associate professor of urban planning at the University of Saskatchewan and past chair of its Regional and Urban Planning program.
Ted Jojola is Distinguished Professor and Regents’ Professor in the School of Architecture and Planning and the director of the Indigenous Design and Planning Institute at the University of New Mexico. He is an enrolled tribal member of the Pueblo of Isleta.
David Natcher is a cultural anthropologist and professor in the Department of Bioresource Policy, Business and Economics at the University of Saskatchewan.
