Today and every day we recognize and celebrate indigenous people as the first, best stewards of the land—here and across the nation. Lomakatsi is committed to supporting the many sovereign tribal nations, tribal organizations, and tribal communities we partner with, as we continue to work together to restore the land, water, wildlife habitat, and ecocultural systems. We honor the 27 enrolled tribal members currently employed by Lomakatsi, representing diverse tribal communities, who work tirelessly toward healthier forests and people.
“We celebrate and honor the Ancestors with the Indigenous Traditional Ecological Knowledge they have passed down to us. We stand in this place, weaving those ancient traditions and ceremonies into our current practices in restoring the land and rebuilding strong nations with a tribal workforce that can sustain restoration economies in tribal communities.”
– Belinda Brown, Lomakatsi Tribal Partnerships Director, Board Secretary, and Chair of the Inter-Tribal Ecosystem Restoration Partnership – Kosealekte Band of the Ajumawi-Atsuge Nation (Pit River Tribe)

We acknowledge that Lomakatsi operates programs across the ancestral lands of aboriginal peoples who lived and live in the watersheds of the Willamette River, Rogue River, Klamath River, Umpqua River, and Pit River, in what is now called Oregon and California. From sagebrush hillsides and mixed conifer forests, to oak woodlands and riverine systems, we offer our respect, recognition, and gratitude to the original past, present, and future inhabitants of these landscapes, to whom we dedicate this work.
