Inhabitants: An Indigenous Perspective— Native American: Sustainable ways of life
After the film, which highlights five Native American tribes as they restore their traditional land management practices in each of their widely different ecosystems, three local Pomo tribe members will discuss their own experiences.
Five Native American Tribes restore their traditional land management practices across deserts, coastlines, forests, and prairies.
For millennia Native Americans successfully stewarded and shaped their landscapes, but centuries of colonization have disrupted their ability to maintain their traditional life ways. As the climate crisis escalates these time-tested practices of North America's original inhabitants are becoming increasingly essential in a rapidly changing world. Follow five Native American Tribes across deserts, coastlines, forests, and prairies as they restore their traditional land management practices.
