As collaborative fire management projects between tribal and non-tribal entities are increasingly recognized for their potential to achieve both ecological and cultural fire management goals in a warming climate, it’s important that non-tribal researchers and resource managers approach these collaborations in respectful and non-extractive ways.

In this webinar, USFS research ecologist Dr. Frank Lake will discuss the historical context of cultural burning, clarify misconceptions about cultural burning, and present a decolonizing framework for fire management as a grounding for modern approaches to collaborative fire management that achieve shared values and resource objectives. Frank will also share best practices and lessons learned for adaptive approaches to collaborative wildland fire management projects with tribal partners.
