It is informed by the perspectives of a group of Inuit, Sámi, and settler co-curators whose shared ambition is to support northern Indigenous forms of sovereignty shaped by an understanding of the land as home. The co-curators acknowledge that the work of deepening architecture's engagement with Indigenous designers and their communities needs to above all centre the knowledge and experiences of being at home on the land. While proceeding through a series of open and future-oriented questions, exploring what it means for Indigenous peoples to design with and be at home on the land, the project examines and celebrates practices of designing and building on the land that empower Indigenous communities.
