Incorporating Tribal Traditional Knowledge and Community Values into Wildland Fire Management

Presenter: Frank Lake, US Forest Service,  Pacific Southwest Research Station.    

Description: This  presentation provides background information on existing federal agency fire planning and management activities. Additionally, it  discusses opportunities for how tribes and communities can coordinate with  fire managers to identify values at risk and recommend mitigation  actions or other treatments to reduce non-desired impacts to valued  resources. This overview includes information about the Wildland  Fire Decision Support System (WFDSS) and how “values at risk” are  identified and could be managed. Different case study examples will be  used to provide place-based context for different resources valued by  tribes and communities.
