Indigenous Planning employs a Seven Generations model that uses culture and identity to inform community development. PlaceKnowing is necessary for understanding how communities construct their worldview to give and sustain meaning to the landscapes they inherit.

Please join us for a conversation with Theodore (Ted) Jojola, PhD, Distinguished Professor in the Community & Regional Planning Program, School of Architecture + Planning, University of New Mexico (UNM), and Founder and Director of the Indigenous Design + Planning Institute (iD+Pi).

Moderated by Lee Davis, Co-Director, Center for Social Design, Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), and Designer-in-Residence & Curator with the Ecological Design Collective.

The latest in our 2021 monthly series on Race, Ecology, and Design.

Professor Jojola is actively involved in major research projects on Indigenous community development and PlaceKnowing. He is co-editor of two books: How It Is: The Native American Philosophy of V.F. Cordova (U. of Arizona Press, 2007) and Reclaiming Indigenous Planning (McGill-Queens University Press, 2013). He has published numerous articles on topics relating to indigenous design & planning, stereotyping and economic development. Professor Jojola was Director of Native American Studies at UNM from 1980-1996, and established the interdisciplinary undergraduate degree program in Native Studies. He is an enrolled member of the Pueblo of Isleta.

The Indigenous Design + Planning Institute (iD+Pi) works with tribal communities throughout the Southwest region as well as internationally by facilitating culturally informed approaches to community development.
