About the Training

First Nations Development Institute is hosting a day and a half meeting for tribal leaders, Native American nonprofits and key stakeholders engaged in tribal conservation and natural resource development in Native American communities. This convening will:
  • Showcase best practices for asset-mapping tribal natural resources
  • Present models that demonstrate the link between sustainable ecological stewardship and tribal economic development
  • Share strategies for identifying and capitalizing on natural resources as a pathway for tribal economic development
  • Provide regional networking opportunities with other regional tribes engaged in economic development opportunities through natural resources
  • Engage participants in identifying challenges and solutions that hinder opportunities through ecological stewardship
Strategic conservation and stewardship planning is becoming a top-tier priority for land managers across the United States and tribal entities are no different. This meeting will bring interested parties from the Great Plains together to learn about stewardship techniques, assessment tools and facilitate a conversation on strengths, opportunities and challenges the region faces in formalizing stewardship plans. Join us to learn about tribal best practices in the region and start thinking about creating a sustainable plan for stewardship today!
