The Native Land Trust Council


The Native Land Trust Council (NLTC) is a collaboration of five Native land trusts: Amah Mutsun Land Trust, Kumeyaay Diegueno Land Conservancy, Maidu Summit Consortium, Native American Land Conservancy, and Native Conservancy. The NLTC’s purpose is to promote the conservation of Indigenous land, culture, and stewardship through initiatives and activities of Indigenous Peoples. These include land trusts and other not for profit organizations carrying out charitable, public, and educational activities.

The NLTC currently works within the state of California facilitating the development of relationships with Tribes and assisting their efforts to create land trusts or partnerships with existing organizations doing similar work on ancestral homelands. The goal of NLTC is to ensure the conservation of land, forests, and wildlife through Indigenous knowledge and leadership.
