A Conversation About Indigenous Sovereignties and Land Conservation


The #landback movement advocates for the return of U.S. public lands to Indigenous Nations. How does our relationship to the land change when the land is being protected by Indigenous conservationists? This webinar with Diné scholars and activists will center these questions within the collective Indigenous cultural history of the Grand Canyon.
