This installment of the Connecting for Conservation webinar series was the second in a two-part series on indigenous approaches to conservation. It served as a continuation of a conversation around Native American heritage and tribal stewardship, which began at the Salazar Center’s 2019 symposium and featured Loren BirdRattler and Terry Tatsey of the Blackfeet Nation and Eli Enns of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nation.

The webinar featured Dina Gilio-Whitaker, Dr. Clint Carroll, and Dr. Dominique David-Chavez in a discussion of Indigenous approaches to conservation.
