Interest in outdoor recreation surged during the COVID-19 pandemic; today, the number of Americans adventuring outdoors continues to grow. Unfortunately, the outdoor recreation industry and the mainstream conservation movement have historically excluded Indigenous people.

Native nations are using their sovereignty in a big way to reclaim and reimagine outdoor recreation and tourism. Join us for our next virtual event, Sovereignty and Outdoor Spaces, where we’ll explore: 

  • Examples of Indigenous-designed outdoor recreation efforts
  • Ways non-Indigenous folks can support these efforts
  • Tips for recreating respectfully

Whether your bucket list is filled with outdoorsy #goals or you’re new to the outdoor recreation space, this event will provide something for everyone. Come with your questions!
