TREC Webinar | New Directions in Indigenous Land Stewardship
Thursday, November 10th | 11:00am-12:00pm MNT
Presenter: Juliette Lee (she/her), Co-Director, Organization Development Program with TREC
Panel discussion of experts and leaders: TBD
Long before European explorers arrived in and settled North America, the original Indigenous inhabitants practiced careful land management to shepherd their natural resources and support thriving societies. Despite ongoing challenges to their sovereignty and rights from foreign governments, corporations, and settler interests, First Nations and tribes have strategically emerged practices and legal structures to continue their careful stewardship of the land. Hear directly from researchers and Native experts about the strategies, tools, and practices Indigenous leaders have used to protect their communities, cultural practices, and the environment.
From managing Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCAs) in Canada to protecting tribal land and water rights in national parks, reservations, and unceded lands.
