The First, Best Stewards: Aboriginal Fire & the Klamath Siskiyous
May 20 @ 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Panel Description: The peoples native to southern Oregon and northern California have been using fire as an ecological caretaking tool since time immemorial. This panel will explore topics including the cultural landscape of the Klamath-Siskiyou ecoregion, fire ecology, indigenous stewardship practices, colonialism and its impact on the land and people, and climate change impacts. Learn how Native American tribes and tribal communities are leading landscape-scale ecological restoration partnerships in the region and incorporating traditional knowledge and ecocultural practices into restoration forestry work that sets the stage for carefully applied, controlled fire.
