InterTribal Sinkyone Wilderness Council
InterTribal Sinkyone Wilderness Council (ITSWC)
InterTribal Sinkyone Wilderness Council (ITSWC) is a non-profit Tribal conservation consortium of ten federally recognized Northern California Indian Tribes that retain ancestral and cultural ties to the Sinkyone Tribal territory in southern Humboldt and northern Mendocino Counties. Founded in 1986, the ITSWC works to reestablish local Indian peoples’ stewardship in the Sinkyone region of the North Coast through culturally informed land conservation, restoration of the redwood ecosystem, management of traditional resources, environmental education, Native land and water rights advocacy, and partnerships with various conservation organizations and agencies. In 1997, the ITSWC established the first-ever InterTribal Wilderness on 3,845 acres of Sinkyone ancestral land acquired from The Trust for Public Land.
