For our part, we invite you to view the conference given by Maya Cousineau-Mollen (Inuit and First Nations Community Development Advisor) at TEDxMontrealSalon on the role that architecture must play in the service of reconciliation.
“Paths to diversity are sometimes hidden in the annals of colonial history. By exploring the world of architecture and its contribution to our society, we try to understand the beneficial influence that this profession can bring to Aboriginal communities. From Nunavut and Nunavik to First Nations’ lands across the country, we can see concrete examples of this evocative influence.”
