Less than 0.5% of AIA members are Native American and less than a handful are Native American women architects.
We are fortunate in the Western New York region to be geographically located near many Native American communities in both the Southtowns and the Northtowns. We have the opportunity to reach out in these communities to provide programming to children who may not otherwise have opportunity to learn about architecture and design.
In May 2016, the Buffalo Architecture Foundation will be working with Native American students from Lake Shore Middle School teaching about architecture, design and construction concepts. Check out last years program here.
