Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
On today’s episode Jessica hosts Dr. Diane Menzies (Ngāti Kahungunu, Rongowhakaata, & Aitanga a Mahaki), Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit and consultant on cultural landscape and Indigenous issues for Landcult Ltd. We discuss Landscape Architecture, western professional mono-culture, and how decolonization can lead to better cities. Dr. Menzies speaks to differing perspectives on landscapes as well as addressing different perspectives when mediating conflict relating to the land. Finally, we talk about how to better inform the public about these topics, including some of her works as examples.
