Panel Discussion: Anti-Indigenous Racism in Planning
Written by Admin, Admin •
On January 11th, 2022, we hosted a thought-provoking panel discussion about the multiple ways that structural racism in the land use planning system has impacted Indigenous peoples and how we can uplift Indigenous worldviews that have been suppressed.
This panel discussion is moderated by Bob Goulais of Nbisiing Consulting, from Nipissing First Nation and features Carolyn King, Board Chair of Shared Path, from Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation; Aaron St. Pierre, Associate Director, Office of Indigenous Initiatives, Queen’s University, from Moose Deer Point First Nation; and Dr. Heather Dorries, Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography and Planning and Centre for Indigenous Studies at the University of Toronto, who is Anishnaabe from Winnipeg.
Miigwetch, Nia:wen, Marsee to the panelists and all those who were able to join us!
