Culture: Conservation Legacy/Ancestral Lands Program

 

The Ancestral Lands program is rooted in the culture and heritage of local tribal communities. The power and impact of Ancestral Lands programming is due to the community investment and support for each program tribally and locally, combined with the network of operational support from Conservation Legacy.

The Ancestral Lands program began in 2008 based at Pueblo of Acoma, New Mexico. Ancestral Lands engages Indigenous youth and young adults in meaningful conservation projects on Tribal Lands. Programs are based in Acoma Pueblo, Navajo Nation, Zuni Pueblo, Hopi Pueblo, and Albuquerque.

Ancestral Lands crews have being working on projects from historical preservation, traditional agriculture, chainsaw crews, hiking clubs, stream restoration, fencing, trail construction, and more. The Ancestral Lands program also aims to incorporate traditional culture and language as part of crew lifestyle and project work.
