Take-Away: This presentation will share the perspective of





tribal planners working with tribal communities. Topics will


include the issues, challenges and opportunities of working in


tribal communities.




Description: Tribes have been planning, designing and





building for centuries within their natural environments. As


a society, we are not the same communities we were fifty


years ago and we will not be the same community fifty years


from now. Today, tribes are strategically planning for their


evolving communities, which includes a careful balance of


the two worlds they live in; the western world and cultural


world. Tribes are using planning strategies and tailoring the


planning processes to design their communities to best reflect


their people, culture, tradition,


language and way of life. This


presentation will share the


experience and perspective of


tribal planners working with


tribal communities.
