On the eve of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, we are very excited to share a new 20-minute short film centered on the 15 tribal young adults who recently completed Lomakatsi Restoration Project’s year-long Tribal Ecological Forestry Training Program: https://lomakatsi.org/tribalhandsontheland/

Crew members earned professional certifications and worked to create resilient forests, fire-adapted communities, and healthy wildlife habitat across Klamath and Jackson counties in Oregon, and Modoc County in northeastern California.
The video features interviews with tribal elders and community members, crew members, elected tribal leaders, and Lomakatsi’s trainers, restoration forestry experts, and cultural specialists. Through partnerships with the Klamath Tribal community, the Kosealekte Band of the Pit River Tribe, and the Fort Bidwell Indian Tribe, highlighted projects incorporate restoration science and practice with time-tested Indigenous Traditional Ecological Knowledge.
We look forward to welcoming a new cohort of tribal young adults to the program this fall. We thank the many partners and funders who make this program possible, with special thanks to videographer Ammon Cluff for bringing this video to life.
