link DOWNLOAD FILE: poster

The goal of the Indigenous Peoples Burning Network (IPBN) is to revitalize the implementation of cultural burns in native communities through the cultivation of an intertribal support system in which traditional ecological knowledge is shared and rights are protected. The Yurok-Hupa-Karuk IPBN is the first in what may grow into a network that includes multiple indigenous fire cultures in many geographies aimed at developing capacity in two worlds of fire—contemporary and traditional.

This poster gives a brief overview of the Yurok-Hupa-Karuk IPBN in the spring of 2016. Developed for the annual Learning Networks Workshop, April 25-29, Jacksonville, FL.

The Indigenous Peoples Burning Network—along with the Fire Learning Network, Prescribed Fire Training Exchanges and the Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network—is supported by Promoting Ecosystem Resilience and Fire Adapted Communities Together (PERFACT), a cooperative agreement between The Nature Conservancy, the USDA Forest Service and agencies of the Department of the Interior.​
