As part of a climate adaptation plan, the Blackfeet Department of Fish and Wildlife is working with beavers to increase natural water storage in wetlands and riparian areas. This panel will explore the cultural importance of beavers to the Blackfeet people and how traditional knowledge is informing modern climate adaptation and restoration strategies, within a larger context of tribal treaty rights and sovereignty.
This panel is part of the University of Montana's Indian Law Week, and will be followed by the annual fundraiser, An Evening With NALSA.
Free and open to all! See full week's programs at the link below.
