Historic Land Loss among Native Americans: What Land Trusts Need to Know Before Partnering with Native American Tribes and Nations
Instructors: Chuck Sams and Kenneth Holbrook
The history of Native land loss in this country is a painful one. All the land that we live and work on – and are conserving today – is the ancestral land of Native Americans. Before land trusts can authentically partner with Native American tribes and Nations, it is incumbent on us to begin the work of understanding their history and cultural and spiritual ties to nature. Chuck Sams, Interim Director of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, has extensive experience working in the field of land conservation and has presented many times on this subject. He will be joined by Ken Holbrook, a member of the Mountain Maidu tribe, executive director and a founding member of the Maidu Summit Consortium, and a seasoned land trust presenter.
