Restoring Ancestral Lands

Fort Belknap, Montana

From the Good News Department:  A recent article in the New York Times by Nate Schweber points to a small, but possibly growing movement on Native American ancestral lands to help restore prairie habitat.  Native lands are in a particularly good position to be able to succeed in this endeavor because the percentage of unplowed land on tribal land is greater than that of other private lands.

Perhaps the most encouraging sign, however, beyond the success they’ve had in protecting habitat and wildlife, is that a new generation is starting to take charge.  Native American men and women in their 20s and 30s are taking an interest in protecting and restoring their ancestral lands, and that can only be good for the incredible place we call the Great Plains!
