Through our Native Lands Program
Our Native Lands Work

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.

And we’re advocating
We’re Advocating for Funding Programs and Policies

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.
