UNCEDED: VOICES OF THE LAND

UNCEDED: Voices of the Land is a celebration of Indigenous architecture that speaks to and from landscapes of resilience, overcoming unforgiving limitations and serving as a register of hope and pride for Indigenous designers across Turtle Island.

Unceded will be an experience bringing together the past, present and future of Indigenous experience as seen through the eyes and minds of Indigenous architects on Turtle Island. We envisage the Turtle Island Pavilion to be used as surfaces for telling the story through four thematic metaphors – indigeneity, resilience, sovereignty, and colonization.

UNCEDED: Voices of the Land will show the world that Indigenous cultures inscribed within the laws, customs, and traditions of our peoples, have a great contribution to make to the world, as seen through the work of the Indigenous architects.

Join Douglas J. Cardinal and team in Venice and share in this significant moment in Canada’s history, as a key supporter of the Canadian entry to the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale.
