About the ISAPD Yale Chapter
Established in September 2018 at the Yale School of Architecture, the Indigenous Scholars of Architecture, Planning and Design (ISAPD) is a collective student group focused on increasing the knowledge, consciousness and appreciation of indigenous architecture, planning, and design at the Yale School of Architecture and throughout the Yale community at large. ISAPD projects have taken many forms, including the adoption of the inaugural tribal land acknowledgment for the Jim Vlock Building Project, curating and designing an exhibition, proposing curriculum and resource additions, and increasing indigenous representation.
ISAPD was founded by Summer Sutton (Lumbee), Architecture PhD ’21; Anjelica Gallegos (Santa Ana Pueblo/Jicarilla Apache), MArch I ’21; and Charelle Brown (Kewa Pueblo), BA in Architecture Studies ’20.
