Y2Y Principles for Working with Indigenous Peoples

The purpose of this document is to guide Y2Y in building and strengthening effective and respectful working relationships with Indigenous governments, people, and organizations.

Indigenous nations have title to and/or rights and/or cultural interests within traditional territories and often have decision-making powers on land use and resource allocation.

The Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y) seeks to protect and connect the region’s lands and waters so that people and nature can thrive. One of the ways we do this is through engaging and supporting a variety of partners to advance the Y2Y vision on the ground, including Indigenous governments, people, and organizations.
