Stewarding Native Lands Brochure


Native American communities have sustainably managed their lands since time immemorial — cultivating, adapting, and transferring traditional ecological knowledge over many generations.

Through First Nations’ Stewarding Native Lands program, a future is envisioned where Indigenous communities and Native nations manage their homelands and resources in the ways they always have — by ensuring their own sustainable, economic, spiritual, and cultural well-being.

This brochure highlights why we launched this important program and features a community partner spotlight on the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe’s efforts to reintroduce the endangered black-footed ferret.
