CNPS news across the state
Eco-cultural restoration led by Native women invokes societal roles held since time immemorial while also offering a unique perspective of the environment, including land tending and care.
In order to restore native ecosystems that are resilient against climate chaos, many Indigenous practitioners continue to utilize Traditional Cultural Practices such as cultural burning.
Julia Cordero-Lamb of the Coastal Band of the Chumash Nation explains how Traditional Indigenous regenerative horticulture is the science of discerning what the plants tell us they need.
