Return the National Parks to the Tribes

posted on April 20, 2021

For The Atlantic, David Treuer reports, “For Native Americans, there can be no better remedy for the theft of land than land. And for us, no lands are as spiritually significant as the national parks.” He argues for the return of the national parks to native tribes, contending that this move would both right historical wrongs and avoid partisan mismanagement. Treuer writes, “The national parks are the closest thing America has to sacred lands, and like the frontier of old, they can help forge our democracy anew.”
