41st Annual National Indian Timber Symposium
Jun 26 2017 to Jun 29 2017
Yakima Convention Center, Yakima, WA
The Intertribal Timber Council has for the past thirty‐nine years coordinated and conducted an Annual National Indian Timber Symposium. The symposium is designed to facilitate communication from the perspective of tribes, the BIA, private industry, legislative bodies, and academia on issues and concerns of current forestry management practices.
Symposium participants produce findings and recommendations, which are submitted to the Assistant Secretary of the Interior and other federal agencies for follow‐up. This procedure gives the Intertribal Timber Council and the BIA a foundation to analyze the progress occurring to resolve the issues being confronted. Published final proceedings of the symposium serve as comprehensive documentation and are mailed to each participant and Bureau official. The Bureau, after receiving and reviewing the findings and recommendations, schedules follow‐up meetings with the Intertribal Timber Council Executive Board to discuss the responses of the administration.
