Aboriginal perspectives on planning in Canada - decolonizing the process: A discussion with four Aboriginal practitioners
It would be impossible to have an issue of Plan Canada focusing on heritage concerns without considering the Aboriginal perspective, which is clearly the longest and deepest element of human heritage in the country. On behalf of Plan Canada, John Peters has raised a number of important questions with four Aboriginal professionals whose work brings them into contact with planning and planners. What emerges is a short history of some old problems and a rather optimistic view of what might lie ahead if professional planners were to adopt a more respectful and open attitude.Un numero de Plan Canada consacré au patrimoine serait incomplet si l'on ne tenait pas compte de la perspective des Autochtones puisque ceux-ci forment manifestement le plus ancien et le plus profond des éléments du patrimoine humain du pays. John Peters, pour le compte de Plan Canada, a soulevé des questions importantes avec quatre professionnels autochtones dont le travail les amène à côtoyer urbanisme et urbanistes. Il ressort de ces entretiens un bref historique de certains problèmes anciens et une perspective plutôt optimiste de ce que l'avenir pourrait réserver si les urbanistes professionnels adoptent une attitude plus respectueuse et plus ouverte.
