About This Webinar

Indigenous peoples stewarded the land of North America for thousands of years before the arrival of Europeans. As European colonizers moved across the continent, these peoples were forced from their homelands. Stewardship, land access and rematriation are all connected. Join experts from the Inclusive Community Cooperative to learn how your land trust can support indigenous methods of stewardship.

Daisy Purdy, founder of ICC, is an indigenous and disability rights activist. She also lectures at universities on ethnic studies, applied indigenous studies and sociology.

Jon Naranjo is a practitioner of Native American cultural and traditional way of life self-sustaining practices.

Dr. Tommy Rock has a doctoral degree in Earth Science and Environmental Sustainability. He employs a Native American perspective and multidisciplinary approach to solving complicated sustainability issues in the Southwest.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • about tribal sovereignty and its effects on stewardship;

  • how to partner with indigenous communities for cultural easements;

  • what rematriation means to indigenous communities; and how Native American traditional practices can be incorporated into stewardship.
