The Settler Colonial Present is a collaboration between the Settler Colonial City Project and e-flux Architecture, featuring contributions by Anita Bakshi, Andrea Carlson (Ojibwe) and Rozalinda Borcilă, Eliseo Huencho (Mapuche),Paulo Tavares, and K. Wayne Yang, as well as statements by Jonathan Cordero (Ramaytush Ohlone), John N. Low (Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians), Shalini Agrawal and Shylah Hamilton, Kanyon Sayers-Roods (Costanoan Ohlone and Chumash), Mark Jarzombek, and the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust. Exploring architecture’s constitutive relationship to settler colonialism in the Americas, contributions reflect on spatial violence in Anishinaabe, Karajá, Kumeyaay, Ramapough, Mapuche, Aymara, and Ohlone territories, as well as the ways in which the peoples of these lands have resisted and contested this violence.
