Media, Publications and Online Resources


Escaping social-ecological traps through tribal stewardship on national forest lands in the Pacific Northwest, United States of America. By Frank Lake and Jonathon W. Long. Tribal communities in the Pacific Northwest of the United States of America (USA) have long-standing relationships to ancestral lands now managed by federal land management agencies. In recent decades, federal and state governments have increasingly recognized tribal rights to resources on public lands and to participate in their management. In support of a new planning initiative to promote sustainable land management, we reviewed scientific publications to examine relationships between tribal social-ecological systems and public lands in the region. https://www.ecologyandsociety.org/vol23/iss2/art10/

Evaluating the Effects of Traditional Harvest and Climate on Common Camas (Camassia quamash) in Weippe Prairie, Idaho. By Devin S. Stucki. Common camas (Camassia quamash) is a culturally important wetland plant, used as a staple food source by many indigenous peoples of western North America for thousands of years. Camas populations were once widespread, but conversion of wetland prairies to agriculture has led to declines in suitable habitat. https://ir.library.oregonstate.edu/conc ... /9g54xp73n

May 23, 2018. 11 am Pacific. Webinar: Communicating Climate Change: CTUIR Climate Adaptation Planning and Community Outreach. Climate change impacts are complicated and interrelated, and planning for adaptation requires the participation of everyone. As CTUIR begins to think about these impacts on traditional First Foods and develop an adaptation plan, gathering meaningful participation from tribal departments, community, and government requires a level of understanding about climate change science that may not be shared by all. Developing a communication strategy that cuts across disciplines and speaks to varying levels of scientific background will ensure the larger tribal community and their cultural resource priorities are accurately represented in the final product. This webinar will introduce the CTUIR and their First Foods concept that drives their governance, provide an overview of anticipated climate impacts to these precious cultural resources, and discuss the development of climate change science communication that ties impacts to First Foods and other aspects of tribal life.
