"We Are the Stewards reviews the current state of Indigenous-led fisheries management in the United States and Canada, summarizing major trends in Indigenous-led fisheries innovation in North America and presents common keys and challenges to the success of these efforts. Using three cases (Yukon River Inter-Tribal Watershed Council, Red Lake Walleye Recovery Project, and Tulalip Tribes/Snohomish Basin BioGas Project), the author demonstrates the ingenuity, resourcefulness, and tenacity of Native nations in exerting substantive management authority over the fisheries on which they have long depended, suggesting that internal institutional factors often play a critical role in Native nations’ efforts to develop, implement, and monitor innovations that advance their vision for sustainable fisheries."
