Summer Course in Natural Resources Co-Management

Envir 495D

Tuesday, 1:10-4:30pm; PAA A212
One required all day field trip (Date TBD by consensus first day of class) Office hours and location: Wallace 15H; by appt.

Indigenous People and the Collaborative Stewardship of Non-human Nature Joyce LeCompte, Lecturer; Program on the Environment
email: jklm@uw.edu
Instructor website: http://jklmastenbrook.net

3 credits: Class and required field trip

5 credits: Includes practicum

Course Description
This course surveys the conceptual and practical issues encountered when Indigenous peoples participate in the collaborative stewardship of natural resources. Involving Indigenous people and communities in natural resources stewardship has the potential to produce more equitable and sustainable outcomes, yet even well-intentioned initiatives often fail to produce truly equal partnerships. Focusing primarily on issues and cases involving federally recognized Tribes in the Pacific Northwest, students will develop a solid understanding of the cultural, social, political and legal frameworks that are required to engage in meaningful partnerships with Indigenous communities. We will explore environmental issues, from pre-European contact times through the present, attending to Indigenous and treaty-based perspectives. We will survey the dynamic role of Indigenous peoples in environmental and resource stewardship through the lenses of tribal sovereignty, treaty rights, and Indigenous law.

Course Objectives
Through this course, students will grow their understanding in the following areas:
• Gain an understanding of, and appreciation for, the diversity of Indigenous peoples, perspectives, and approaches to the environment;
• Explore the treaty relationship and other institutions that govern natural resources and the environment in the United States;
• Recognize key challenges and opportunities to collaborative natural resource stewardship experienced by Indigenous peoples at the intersection of history, culture, politics, law, science, and economic development;
• Appreciate the knowledges, practices, and beliefs of Indigenous peoples, and their role in natural resource stewardship and environmental governance in the US.

This course will prepare students for future work with Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities and governmental and non-governmental organizations with the ultimate goal of improving the relations between Indigenous communities and various groups and institutions.

Required Texts
• Ross, Anne, et al. 2011. Indigenous Peoples and the Collaborative Stewardship of Nature: Knowledge Binds and Institutional Conflicts. Walnut Creek, CA : Left Coast Press. • Other required readings will be made available on Catalyst

Join the Pack Forest and ONRC Summer Crews!

Dear undergrads,

Every summer, a hardy crew of SEFS student interns heads down to Pack Forest for two months of hands-on field training in sustainable forest management. It’s one of our oldest field traditions, and also one of the most memorable, and this year there’s an exciting twist: We’re creating a second crew that will based out at the Olympic Natural Resources Center (ONRC) out on the Olympic Peninsula!

Specifically, we are looking for five to six Forest Resource Interns, who will assist with the management and stewardship of Pack Forest’s timber resources, research installations, roads and trails. These students will develop forest mensuration skills, practice species identification, participate in research programs, and participate in sustainable forest management. Also, for the first time we are looking for up to five ONRC interns to support forest and riparian research on remote watersheds in the Olympic Experimental State Forest.

All internships run throughout the summer quarter, from June 19 to August 18. Four ESRM credits are available, and all students receive a $200 weekly stipend along with free housing.

To apply, send your resume and cover letter—by Sunday, April 9—describing how the internship will fit into your program to Professor Greg Ettl at ettl@uw.edu.
