U.S. public land and water management are grounded in settler colonialism, including Indigenous land dispossessions and violations of Tribal Treaties. This free training series features four sessions that bring Indigenous scholars and land managers into conversation about reimagining outdoor recreation through decolonization, Indigenous value systems, and Indigenous futures.

Each 90 minute session will feature a panel presentation from Indigenous leaders and breakout discussions with participants to further the dialogue around outdoor recreation professionals’ role in decolonization.

When: Oct. 12, 19, 26 and Nov. 2 from 12-1:30 p.m.

  • Oct. 12: History of Indigenous Lands Dispossession
  • Oct. 19: Tribal Co-management of Parks and Protected Areas
  • Oct. 26: Indigenous Leaders in outdoor recreation management
