The CA LCC Tribal Team was formed to incorporate tribal perspectives and interests in CA LCC activities.  The Tribal Team works to create opportunities for partnership between and among Tribes and other land managers and contribute to a holistic view of land management that includes tribal cultural heritage and traditional ecological knowledge (TEK). The CA LCC Tribal Team supports the integration of TEK into management practices to ensure resilient and sustainable natural landscapes for California.

The Tribal Team Charter and Statement of Purpose are guidance documents for Tribal Team meetings and activities.
