The Right to Change Tribal Forest Management
Abstract:Traditional national forest management provided the model for Indian forest management up to the Tribal Self-Governance Act of 1994. Now, tribal sovereignty provides a new foundation for Native American forest management that offers the potential for integrating ecological and cultural values. Two tribes--the White Mountain Apache of Arizona and the Menominee of Wisconsin--are incorporating long-term forest practices while clarifying social and economic incentives.
