New Architecture on Indigenous Lands is an introduction to a contemporary genre of North American architecture. This 416-page volume by professor of architecture at the University of Illinois Joy Monice Malnar along with professor of fine arts at Loyola University Chicago Frank Vodvarka breaks new, academic ground for Indigenous architecture. Through the voices of planners, architects, and tribal members, this well-illustrated book examines 56 projects covering cultural centres, museums, clinics, schools, and community housing from the Northwest Coast, Central Plain–Great Lakes, and Southwest of the United States, with Canadian projects ranging from British Columbia to Quebec. Each project provides an understanding of the cultural and spiritual connections of the land and people with their traditional teachings.  With 40 black and white images and 155 colour plates this book offers maps, a detailed index as well as details about each project that include Tribal Council Chambers of the Pojoaque Pueblo; the Zuni Eagle Sanctuary in New Mexico; the Nk’Mip Desert Cultural Center in Osoyoos, British Columbia; and the T’lisalagi’law Elementary School; First Peoples House, University of Victoria; Turtle School, Oneida, Wisconsin; Maple Sugar Camp, Oneida, Wisconsin; Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, Cloquet, Minnesota; and First Nations University, Regina, Saskatchewan. This remarkable book is a must-have volume for the professional as well as general readers in secondary and post secondary institutions and public libraries. Highly recommended.
