Treaty Lands, Global Stories (TLGS) is a student-led extracurricular initiative at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture formed in the Fall of 2016 by the three graduate students who sign this article. The name speaks to the spatial, political, and cultural context within which we operate here in Canada—a context that is not adequately addressed in the Eurocentric curricula of many Canadian architecture schools. TLGS advocates for greater diversity in the University of Waterloo’s architectural curriculum to reflect the Indigenous heritage of the land on which the school is situated, as well as the diversity within the school’s student body.
