“In the Heart of Indian Country”: Indigenous urbanism and colonial planning
Taylor Hall is an urban geographer interested in Indigenous and western urbanism. In her thesis research, Taylor approaches indigenous urbanism through city processes and outcomes, specifically how Indigenous inhabitants quality of life and identity are affected. Specifically, the power dynamics involved between Indigenous inhabitants and settler city government in the creation of space. By conducting qualitative interviews with Indigenous inhabitants and city officials, outcomes of planning and instances of opportunities for inclusive processes can be understood.
