Decolonizing Cartography: Reclaiming and Reimagining Indigenous Cartographic Traditions



Cartography, or the science of mapmaking, is often portrayed as a European invention and lives in popular imagination as primarily a tool of colonial exploration and domination. However, Indigenous peoples around the world have their own cartographic traditions and have been making maps of their homelands since time immemorial. In this webinar, Cheyenne geographer, Dr. Annita Lucchesi, will share her work in Indigenous cartography and why recognizing and uplifting Indigenous contributions to cartography is vital to the fields of cartography and geography and to building community wellness.
