Indigenous people in North America have faced fragmentation of their lands as well as assimilation and the division of their culture. These challenges have affected Tribes’ ability to manage natural resources. In the July/August issue of The Wildlife Professional, we explore how Indigenous people are combatting these issues and their growing role in wildlife conservation and management.

Other articles focus on Colorado’s wolf reintroduction, inclusion in the wildlife field and a way to lower the barriers for inexperienced duck hunters.
