Tribal partnership meetings

The landscape restoration strategy embodied in the Zuni Mountains CFLRP is essential to accelerating the Cibola’s restoration efforts while stabilizing local wood manufacturing industries and creating jobs. Planning at the multiple watershed level, the Zuni Mountains landscape strategy approaches forest restoration and economic development at a scale that achieves meaningful ecological, social, and economic results across jurisdictional boundaries. The project plan identifies a land base anchored by prioritized national forest system land in need of restoration and adjacent high priority tribal, state, and private land holdings.

Tribal participation is essential to ensure program success. The Tribal Partnership meetings are a critical tool to encourage tribal participation. In an effort to establish meaningful, on-going relationships and the development of future collaboratives, the Forest Stewards Guild hosted a series of meetings in early May of 2016 with representatives from the Cibola National Forest and five tribes directly impacted by the program (Baahaali Navajo Chapter, Ramah Navajo Chapter, Pueblo of Zuni, Pueblo of Laguna, and Pueblo of Acoma). Below are the notes from those meetings. 

The notes from the May 3rd and 4th tribal partnership meetings can be accessed here.
