This talk will discuss the colonial premise for
contemporary forms of urban life and the
possibilities for Indigenous agency within this
context. The fantasy of property is presented
as central to a detached relationship with the
Land that presents significant challenges for
alternative futures.

Hosted by the UCSD Department of Urban Studies and Planning, co-sponsored by The Design Lab, the Institute of Arts and Humanities, and the Indigenous Futures Institute.
