Citizens for the Red Desert

The Red Desert is an ancestral landscape. Since time immemorial tribes including the Shoshone, Ute, Goshute, Paiute, Bannock, Arapaho, Cheyenne, Lakota, and Crow have lived, hunted, and prospered in these vast lands.

On May 5, Citizens for the Red Desert will welcome three tribal advocates who will share Indigenous narratives of this landscape.

CONSERVATION CAFETERIA
WEDNESDAY, MAY 5
12–1 p.m.
The Red Desert is a living cultural corridor. It retains many Traditional Ecological Knowledge plants, sacred sites, and ancestral stories. Tribal members still use this land today for a variety of traditional and contemporary purposes.

Panelists will include Wes Martel, senior Wind River conservation associate for the Greater Yellowstone Coalition and former longtime member of the Eastern Shoshone Business Council; and Jason Baldes, the tribal buffalo coordinator for the National Wildlife Federation, and myself, the Wind River organizer for the Wyoming Outdoor Council and former tribal historic preservation officer for the Northern Arapaho Tribe.

Please join us on Zoom for this important conversation, and bring your questions.

Thank you,

 
YUFNA SOLDIER WOLF
Wind River Organizer

 

 

P.S. When you RSVP, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to join the Zoom event.
