stewards and wild tenders in Pacific NW Cascadia. Through
weekly meetings we have developed a structured concept for
placing indigenary stewardship villages within large PNW
We have been greatly inspired by Wales'
Planet Development policy and land use regulation which we
recognize as a clear procedural guideline for establishing eco-keystone
habitats for humans in large conservancies in our bio-region. This,
coupled with the concrescent call from climate science to bring much of
humanity back to ecological service livelihoods by 2050, places our
conceptual interest near the visionary edge of indefinitely
sustainable land use.
We are equally inspired by TNC's ideological and
work with the global indigenous. Your Indigenous
Conservation Program seems to have found the elusive
agility that unlocks the commons key to building collaborative
relationships across the array of hard lines that form up when
attempting "inclusive conservation". To our view this deserves a major
prize for revealing the future.
By extension, our conservancy concept foresees the cultural refugees
of climate change
finding themselves necessarily tribalizing around indefinitely
sustainable livelihoods, where
stewarding means indigenous
management and restoration techniques (wild-tending),
means working within conservancies as commons sanctuaries that require
human community for trophic and diversity cascades, consequently
becoming an emergent re-indigenizing peoples and plainly definable as
such through livelihood alliance with the remaining global indigenous.
And within this scheme we have been imaging a future in collaboration
with The Nature Conservancy where you extend your experience mediating
for the truly indigenous and become counsel to our more
bio-regionally unique efforts and concerns. This is what we are
Our direct appeal is for the Conservancy to
ideologically herald the impending humanitarian climate
situation through program recognition of an "emergent indigenary" class
in the first world. To begin sincerely accommodating those who are
trained and aware that they are becoming necessary to the proper
functioning of some of our most endangered local ecosystems, and
bequeath them pilot sanctuaries where the practice of community harmony
is the ancient prerequisite for deep cultural landscape re-generation.
We see this as the inevitable first world outcome of
has beneficially transpired over the last decades between
the world-wide conservancies and the pre-existent indigenous
peoples within them. This institutional success abroad has allowed
indigenous and communal protected areas to be an inspired reality, even
becoming a global priority. We believe this priority will soon come to
have a unique North American theater that we are working to envision
and intentionally prefigure, and feel there are the greening
societal resources on the American west coast to bring it to a
full initial, even this generation, demonstration here in Cascadia.
Again, our inspired base-lines are what Wales has
codify and legalize indefinitely sustainable development through the
agency of Lammas
Eco-village, and what The Nature Conservancy intentions
and Communal Conservation Program.
We are syncing these to:
accommodating the forthcoming human
re-indigenous zeitgeist requiring sanctuary and livelihood as a
species well within the precepts of The Conservancy's mission
and ecological covenant.
self-identifying as indigenous through a
livelihood alliance with the international indigenous community and
begin drawing a social contract with the global Commons in this regard.
