Our state is home to 21 recognized Native American tribes. Altogether, tribal lands make up 19.8 million acres, or about 27.1 percent of land in Arizona. We are honored to have Professor David Pijawka from the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning and Senior Sustainability Scholar at Arizona State University share his knowledge and experience with tribal planning.

David has published over 100 articles in the top peer- reviewed journals in the areas of sustainability planning, risk and hazards management, resiliency planning, neighborhood quality of life measurements, ecosystem services, socio-economic impacts. He is especially honored by his awards on environmental justice from the Maricopa County NAACP, the 2017 Distinguished Professional Planner Award by the Arizona American Planning Association and just recently, the Public Outreach Award with the Navajo Nation on Geodesign Community Planning. David is also recognized for his work with American Indian Nations in the Southwest helping establish the Handbook for Community – Based Planning for the Navajo Nation, the first Geodesign land use plan for the Tohono O’Odham, and a Training/Educational program for American Indian Planning at ASU.

APA and ASLA hold this joint meeting on the first Wednesday of EVERY month and we encourage you to share this invite or bring a colleague for networking and a chance to hear more about building stronger and more sustainable communities. This is our first event of 2019 and we look forward to reconnecting with all of you.
