Date: 2008

EcoPlan developed a Land Use Mapping Interview and Training Guide for KHFN that demonstrated effective ways of mapping and recording traditional land use and related oral histories to assist with KHFN’s future land use planning. The guide was used by KHFN to identify and designate three regional land use areas: conservation areas, cultural emphasis areas, and stewardship areas. The guide was also used to determine the current legal statuses of those areas, their existing land uses, and the impacts in their traditional territories. As part of the project EcoPlan lead a two-day GIS training workshop for KHFN staff.
