Land Access

Thursday, November 4, 2021

The premiere episode of this new series is hosted in response to the growing interest among California tribes in accessing state surplus lands, navigating private land donations, and engaging in land buyback. Speakers will provide an overview of the mechanics of land transactions, including foundational legal tools, how to set up land trusts and non-profits, and basic governance issues. Also covered will be a case study on the formation of an intertribal non-profit to protect and preserve sacred lands.
