Colonization Through Design

Explores the intersection of Indigenous knowledge and innovative design solutions.

Colonization Through Design explores the extent to which housing and ideas of home and domesticity were fundamental to the colonization of Indigenous people in Canada. This book traces the historic conflict between agricultural Christian society and Indigenous ways of knowing, as well as the ongoing assimilative practices of the contemporary settler state. The design profiles within the book explore a new design plurality that links innovative technical solutions with Indigenous knowledge and presents various design solutions that generate cultural continuity and environmental sustainability.
