Join us for the final program in the In the Realm of Indigenous Architectures series, developed in collaboration with the Indigenous Society of Architecture, Planning and Design (ISAPD). In the Realm of Indigenous Architectures presents built projects, architectural tools, and historical policy illustrating the preservation of culture and transformation of Indigenous communities in the United States today. 

Garron Yepa (Navajo, Jemez Pueblo) was born and raised in New Mexico and brings his cultural and regional knowledge to every architectural project as a designer and project manager. Yepa will share information and key insights on the Wa-Di Housing Development for Santo Domingo Pueblo and the Owe’neh Bupingeh Preservation Project for Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo. Yepa will further discuss how these tribal projects informed Siler Yard: Arts+Creativity Center of Santa Fe, the first net-zero energy, 100% electric utilities multi-family project in New Mexico. 

Speaker:
Garron Yepa (Navajo + Jemez Pueblo), AOS Architects

About the Speaker:
Garron Yepa was born and raised in New Mexico and brings his cultural and regional knowledge to every architectural project. As the son of a Navajo (Dine) mother, and a Jemez Pueblo (Towa) father Garron has a unique perspective on architecture and design. Being a fluent Towa speaker has given him insight into another way of describing the world around him. He has continued his learning with extended stays in New Hampshire, Alaska, and New York City – always returning home to restore his grounding in his communities.
