La Canoa: The Meaning of Place—Stories of Resilience

2 pm

Please join Theodore Jojola, University of New Mexico Distinguished Professor and Regents’ Professor in the Community and Regional Planning Program, School of Architecture and Planning, as he presents a talk on community, identity, and resilience. Since time immemorial, people have attached their identities to the places that they have settled. Community embodies the intersection of people and the natural resources that sustain them. That relationship is expressed by their worldview.  A worldview describes the social and spiritual attachment to place. I will draw from these relationships to show examples of how communities have met these challenges. In addition to highlighting NM Indigenous communities that have persevered in time and space, we will examine contemporary examples of such place-making as exemplified in the histories of the Albuquerque Indian School and the Bataan Death March.

Theodore (Ted) Jojola, PhD, is a Distinguished Professor and Regents’ Professor in the Community and Regional Planning Program, School of Architecture and Planning, University of New Mexico (UNM). He is the founder and Director of 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. He is actively involved in major research projects on Indian education, Indigenous community development and architecture. He is co-editor of two books—The Native American Philosophy of V.F. Cordova entitled How It Is (U. of Arizona Press, 2007) and Reclaiming Indigenous Planning (McGill-Queens University Press, 2013).  A third book is in the works, Contemporary Indigenous Architecture: Local Traditions, Global Winds (working title, UNM Press).  He is an enrolled member of the Pueblo of Isleta.
