Social Sustainability Month: Re-indigenizing the Urban Landscape—A Community-Based Approach to Park Development

Location: Women’s Resource Center (Basement of Montgomery Bldg)

Time: 11:00am-1:00pm



The ongoing planning of the 20,000 square foot Inter-Tribal Gathering Garden at Cully Park (ITGG) in Northeast Portland symbolizes a significant shift in City park policy that is creating opportunities for Portland’s diverse Native American population to reclaim urban landscapes for food, medicine and ceremony. Ridhi D’Cruz has been working on a collaborative evaluation of this community-based approach to park development and will present my experiences and research as well as opportunities for future collaborations.
