The article presents an interview with Ted Jojola, a cofounder of the American Planning Association's Indigenous Planning Division. According to Jojola, the goal of the division is to bring together like-minded folks who have a longstanding interest in the relationship of people to the land. That means both tribal and nontribal people from all over the world. Unlike traditional American planners, whose primary interest is regulating land use, indigenous planners look first at land tenure, ownership of the land over successive generations. To indigenous planners, collective stewardship of the land is far more effective than any regulations.
