Title: The Right to Change Tribal Forest Management

Author: * Yazzie-Durglo, V.

Subject: Management, Tribal

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.
