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.
