“Studies show that indigenous managed lands boast higher levels of biodiversity, unsurprising given millennia of stewardship experience.”
—World Wildlife Fund

Learn how tribal management of land is an essential element of climate justice work and how tribes can work together with national and local conservation agencies to acquire and conserve land.

Based on the history of relations with state government and Virginia’s Indigenous population, the annual Sovereignty conference is intended to share critical information needed to build relationships, understanding, and common ground between Tribes and agencies to better the future for our Virginia Tribal communities and all Virginians.
