Webinar: Perspective of Southwest Tribal Forest & Fire Management

February 21 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

A native perspective of the development, growth, and strength of New Mexico tribal programs and efforts to protect, preserve, and enhance tribal forest resources will be highlighted.  This perspective is shared based on over 30 years of experience, working with tribal communities across the US, within the context of federal service with the Department of Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs and USDA Forest Service, and with recent facets of a non-governmental organization The Nature Conservancy.  The evolution of tribal self-determination programs and tribally led conservation will be presented focusing on challenges of this journey, and emerging opportunities for integrating this Indigenous knowledge and experience beyond tribal lands.
