LandBack Returns Stolen Land to Native Americans

The LANDBACK movement has returned land that was stolen from Native Americans. In many cases the land had been identified in treaties as belonging to the Native American people, but the treaties were soon broken. The following in-depth article gives examples of how land is being returned as well as how this relates to conservation and/or stewardship. Click HERE for details.

  1. I saw the elephant one when it first came out. I love it 😀

  2. That Drone story was awesome. I also liked the story about giving the land back to native Americans. Thanks!

  3. I didn’t have time for more than a skim of the LANDBACK link, but this seems such an important movement

  4. These are all wonderful stories, JoAnna. I love the story about saving the dolphins.

  5. As usual, every story is good news, but the elephant story made me smile! Happy Thanksgiving, JoAnna! 🙂

  6. Great stories and the elephants were delightful! Happy Thanksgiving JoAnna!

  7. All good news! I feel especially glad about all the land given back to the Native Americans.

  8. Good news is always most welcome! I had written about Cory Hinton last year; it’s great to see a semblance of justice done. An interesting addendum about Native Americans that hasn’t received much press: many tribes across the country are receiving electricity for the first time. In July, the Biden Administration announced that $2.3 billion in grants would be available for states and tribes “to strengthen and modernize America’s power grid against wildfires, extreme weather, and other natural disasters” worsened by climate change.
