Thursday, February 19, 2015, 12:30-2 PM, Public Affairs 5391
Presented by Ted Jojola, Professor of Community & Regional
Planning, University of New Mexico. Created in 2012, the Indigenous Design and Planning Institute (iD+Pi) is housed in the School of Architecture and Planning, University of New Mexico, and provides technical assistance to tribes. Indigenous Planning is an emerging paradigm that uses a culturally responsive and value based approach to community development. It uses a “Seven Generations Model” for a basis of action and community engagement. This presentation outlines and gives examples of approaches developed by iD+Pi while working with tribes in the Southwest.
