Last week we established a contact with the Cherokee Nation, Department of Natural Resources, and are working on scheduling a program at a presentation on ethnobotany sponsored by the Nation's Department of Natural Resources.
Our recent visit with the District Ranger in Magdalena, NM. may offer an opportunity to develop some potential for a connection with the Navajo Alamo Reservation. The more people we can involve the greater the opportunity exists that we can make positive changes in the future management of our remaining valuable forests.
We are excited about returning to Michigan and rekindling our contacts with the Grand Traverse Band of the Ottawa and Chippewa Indians. Somehow we must find ways to re-emphasize the Traditional Native American Wisdom and understanding of NATURE and link it to the advanced science of forestry. Together we can make a difference!
