About This Project
  • Heartland: Reclaiming Ancestral Territory in Northern California

    From the breathing lungs of Douglas fir forests to the pumping heart of the Klamath River to the humans who call it home, the Yurok Tribe’s heartland of Northern California is essential to their existence. And for hundreds of years, they have been trying to reclaim it piece by piece.
