The Frog Does Not Drink Up the Pond in Which It LivesWyoming: Johnpaul Jones was the lead design consultant for the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian. His latest project will be creating an American Indian Center at the University of Wyoming.  UW's American Indian Studies Program is working with him.

Jones will meet with project stakeholders this month to gather information for the project profile.

"We are pleased to have an internationally known Native American architect working with us on this project," said Judith Antell, director of the American Indian Studies Program.

Jones' tribal affiliation is Cherokee-Choctaw.

The proposed center would house the American Indian Studies Program, a research institute, and provide space for cultural events.

Jones has designed other notable projects including

Southern Ute Museum and Cultural Center
