Check out these photos from Indigenous Traditional Ecological Knowledge Ecocultural Education Days last week with the Tribal Youth Ecological Forestry Training Program.

During a three-day inter-tribal exchange, a dozen tribal trainees and crew leaders employed by Lomakatsi visited Petroglyph Point in the Lava Beds National Monument, the Kosealekte Band area and Pit River Tribe XL Reservation, and the Northern Paiute Gidutikad Band Fort Bidwell Indian Reservation.

To conclude their 18-week program, the ecocultural education days were dedicated to subsistence lifestyle skills and indigenous food sovereignty, natural resource career pathways, cultural fire and wildfire management, and sharing of knowledge between Northern Paiute, Ajumawi-Atsuge (Pit River), Klamath, and Modoc tribal peoples to build inter-tribal workforce capacity for landscape-scale ecosystem restoration.

Thank you to staff from the U.S. Forest Service Modoc National Forest and Bureau of Indian Affairs Division of Forestry and Wildland Fire Management for joining us and sharing about their careers in natural resources.
We’re so proud of this team for all their hard work and grateful to everyone who supported this cohort to the end of their program!
