Indigenous Perspectives on Novel Forests and Ecosystem Change

For hundreds of years Indigenous people have maintained relationships with forests despite massive social, environmental, and economic change. This talk from Mike Dockry, Assistant Professor at University of Minnesota Department of Forest Resources and member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, puts the concepts of novel forests and ecosystem change into conversation with long-term Indigenous perspectives. The talk provides insights into how Indigenous leadership can develop 21st century forestry that respects all species and peoples while confronting our current social, environmental, and economic challenges. 

This resource is a webinar given as part of the Yale Forest Forum's Climate Smart Forestry Series. It was presented virtually on November 6, 2023. You can find more information and watch the webinar at this link
