The contributions that Indigenous communities have made to our urban environments are made visible through several ongoing digital mapping projects across the continent. Many of these maps render visible the community knowledge and collective histories of Indigenous experiences across time. This section will feature resources for mapping projects and community cultural centers that form the heart of Indigenous cultural continuity within the contemporary built environment.
Additional content will be added to this section throughout the residency.
