MY WORK with Northern California coastal communities:

On April 6th, 2011 I was invited by the California State Fish and Game Commission to provide expert testimony on the role of indigenous (Native) science in setting marine policy. A video of that session, which includes tribal testimony, is archived here:  http://www.cal-span.org/cgi-bin/archive.php?owner=CFG&date=2011-04-06

In 2009-10, I moderated a controversial process that involved Mendocino community constituents in coastal marine resource policy planning: http://theava.com/archives/3629
