Event Title

The story of a tribal liaison intern

Presentation Abstract

How can the Forest Service change the discourse of public lands so that it better encompasses the stories and living histories of Native Americans? A potential answer, by creating and presenting a series of listening sessions. It will increase the capacity of potential allies while maintaining and strengthening positive relationships with native communities and youth. Will having a Native American who creates a series of listening sessions build and motivate allies in conservation and preservation on U.S. Forest Service lands? My methodologies are unique in that they draw from standard research methodologies, Northwest Indian College’s Bachelor of Science in Native Environmental Science program outcomes, and also draw from relational data created by observations through my internship experiences; the research dissemination involves storytelling.
