Yale Forest Forum Spring 2024 Speaker Series on Tribal Forestry

Join us for this spring’s speaker series held every Thursday from January 18 to April 25. The sessions will also be recorded.  Here’s a link with all the details.

Tribes and First Nations have been forest stewards since time immemorial on the land that is currently called North America. In the face of climate change, tribes and First Nations continue to work with institutions, NGOs, and federal and state agencies to support Indigenous sovereignty and resilient forested landscapes. This webinar will focus on the current state of tribal forest management and Indigenous stewardship with a series of speakers from different tribes, universities, non-profits, and agencies.

I’d just add that peoples who have been around North America since glaciation may know quite a bit about responding to climate changes..

The speaker series is co-developed and co-hosted by The Forest School at the Yale School of the Environment, the Yale Center for Environmental Justice, and Salish Kootenai College.

The series is facilitated by Gerald Torres (Yale School of the Environment), Adrian Leighton (Salish Kootenai College), and Marlyse Duguid (Yale School of the Environment).
