Fostering Respect for Indigenous Cultural River Uses: Acknowledgement & Reciprocity in Action

River Management Roundtable 

Join an exploration of opportunities to support traditional native activities as a fundamental component of river uses!

You’ll hear how indigenous residents, a tribe, a federal land management agency, a whitewater advocacy organization, an outfitter, and even private boaters are learning to appreciate traditional river-based ceremony and reduce the impact they create while they recreate.

 

Presenter

Jen Rice Jen Rice grew up spending time on the creeks of the eastern Sierra and the upper Kern River when Tevas were cutting-edge technology. After Jen completed a degree in Natural Resource management at Humboldt State University, she spent seven seasons working for the USFS and NPS and then shifted to the nonprofit and philanthropy sectors. She started working with Native communities in 2001 to more robustly include them in community planning and policymaking, and in the last decade had responsibility for programs that supported Native culture and language revitalization around California and Native-led grassroots organizing in NW California. She recently stepped away from 25 years of directing large-scale systems change initiatives to pursue graduate studies. For the last 33 years, she has been fortunate to row multi-day private trips with friends and family river guides and outfitters on backyard treasures of the Klamath, Trinity, Rogue, Eel, Smith, and Salmon Rivers as well as other western rivers.
