In this session, we will examine two large-scale collaborations among land trusts in Maine and Oregon to relearn history, recenter Indigenous leadership and to return land, resources and access. On separate sides of the continent, dozens of land trusts have organized themselves into significant collaborations, pooling knowledge, money and skills to be in service to Indigenous Nations around access to land, land returns and cultural wellbeing. First Light is a collaboration between hundreds of leaders, 65 organizations and Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Maliseet and Micmac communities working with the understanding that we are stronger together. Through moving at the speed of trust, these land trusts have returned a thousand acres and granted legal access to 78,000 acres, with much more to come. In Oregon, fifteen land trusts have come together to form the Oregon Land Justice Project whose mission is to partner with Indigenous Nations to reclaim and reconnect to their traditional landscapes and first foods. Both collective efforts aspire to reciprocity: to expand Indigenous access, presence and relationship to land for our collective wellbeing and to create a stronger conservation movement that includes and reflects Indigenous expertise. We will share the motivations, structures and results of this work that is redefining what land trusts do, what conservation means and promises to reform the relationship between conservation and Indigenous nations.
