Restoring Tribal and Indigenous Lands
We are committed to supporting tribal and Indigenous communities to reconnect their ancestral lands and honor and maintain their native culture, sovereignty, and traditions. We need your help to partner with us in this ambitious vision.
We have worked with more than 70 tribes and Indigenous groups to protect more than 200,000 acres from California to Washington to Hawai’i.
We partner with tribal governments and communities and state and federal agencies to acquire and preserve homelands and culturally significant places such as ancestral burial grounds, fishing sites, and lands that supply traditional foods and medicines.
We’re pursuing legislative and administrative strategies to remove barriers to tribal access to federal programs and funding, and we’re pushing for new and sustainable funding programs such as the Forest Legacy and Community Forest Program to protect and preserve Indigenous culture and their ancestral lands.
