Abstract:
The Standing Rock Sioux Reservation comprises 2.3 million acres, primarily rangeland, straddling the North Dakota–South Dakota border. Natural resource management is economically and culturally important to the Standing Rock community. Respecting traditional ways of thinking and placing stakeholders and their needs at the center are key aspects of project development. Native Americans were the original natural resource managers on our rangelands, and their thoughts and expertise can provide guidance to rangeland managers now and in the future.
