The panel included myself, David Edmunds from the Pinoleville Pomo Nation (PPN), Michelle Baker from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Kimberly TallBear from UC Berkeley.
During our panel we spoke on about the partnership amongst CARES, PPN, and UC Berkeley and how the utilization of Co-Design methodology lead to the creation of the culturally inspired housing design adopted by the PPN.
Overall, Greenbuild was an outstanding success!!. We got an standing ovation at the end of our panel and we made good contacts with representatives form LEED and USGBC.
Currently, we are planning for another panel and paper on the subject of LEED and Native American Nations for the summer as well.
