Abstract/ Summary

Darren Ranco says Indigenous peoples should be part of land use decisions, including whether to expand the quarantine zone for the emerald ash borer in northern Maine. "We have to be at the table because proof is in the pudding," says the University of Maine associate professor of anthropology, chair of Native American Programs, and citizen of Penobscot Nation. "When Indigenous people are on the land and making decisions about land management, biodiversity increases."
