Save California Salmon and Cal Poly Humboldt’s Native American Studies Department hosts the Northern California LandBack Symposium today at the Goodwin Forum at Cal Poly Humboldt.
This first-of-its-kind free event will take place from 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and features Tribal and state leaders, University representatives, foundations, NGOs, land trusts, and lawyers working to return land to Northern California tribes and tribal land trusts.
“LandBack is a proven strategy for building climate resilience and addressing some of the most pressing environmental issues facing the State of California and beyond,” explains Cutcha Risling Baldy, Cal Poly Humboldt’s Native American Studies Department Chair. “When we return land to Indigenous peoples we see increases in biodiversity, healthy waters and fish populations, and other positive benefits. The symposium is an opportunity for ongoing community conversations and a tangible way to respond to ongoing calls for restorative land return to Indigenous nations.”y
