IPBN Fact Sheet

Increasingly, Indigenous peoples are recognized for their ability to contribute to solutions to the mounting fire challenges we face. By providing a supportive framework, the IPBN is elevating tribal contributions in this shared journey. The IPBN has grown from a single landscape in 2015—in the combined ancestral territories of the Yurok, Hoopa and Karuk Tribes of Northern California—to include people from pueblos in New Mexico, the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe in Minnesota, the Klamath Tribes in Oregon and the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe in Texas. Activities include strategic planning for revitalization of fire culture, fire training including both federal qualifications and culturally-based controlled burning, and promoting intergenerational learning.
