Abstract: The purpose of this thesis was to illustrate how cultural and natural histories inform place-based community planning. Utilizing both cultural and natural histories, the planner may begin to see patterns of habitancy as they correlate to ecological fluctuations. I focused my research on Kiowa, New Mexico the community my family homesteaded in the grasslands of Northeastern New Mexico and took an auto-ethnographic approach to conducting my research. The story of Kiowa is both unique and universal. The intricacies of the land and people are, indeed, woven into a specific place and times. It is the intersection of Place and of migration of people moving through Place that is the launching point of a dynamic, co-evolving relationship. Utilizing the story of Kiowa, we, as planners, can reference the lessons learned as seeds for future stewardship and planning endeavors. In essence, this story may be seen as a fractal of a more expansive pattern and applications to the field of community and regional planning.
