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.

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

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

I’m pleased you liked the good news. The land being given back to Native Americans will take some time, but I’m glad it’s finally starting, too.

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.

Thank you so much for the addendum and more good news! These things are greatly needed.
