Meaningful Movies Tacoma & Gig Harbor is pleased to present, Inhabitants: An Indigenous Perspective

INHABITANTS follows five Native American Tribes across deserts, coastlines, forests, and prairies as they restore their traditional land management practices. For millennia Native Americans successfully stewarded and shaped their landscapes, but centuries of colonization have disrupted their ability to maintain traditional land management practices. From deserts, coastlines, forests, mountains, and prairies, Native communities are restoring their ancient relationships with the land. As the climate crisis escalates these time-tested practices of North America’s original inhabitants are becoming increasingly essential in a rapidly changing world.

The Speaker: Dana Coggon, Executive Director at Pierce Conservation District

Danas’ passion is connecting people to the places they love and inspiring all to value the natural wonders of Pierce County. Before coming to PCD, Dana spent 15 years as the Director of the Kitsap County Noxious Weed control board, where she worked directly with landowners to establish healthy ecosystems. At the District, she supports staff to educate and inspire community members to be innovative environmental stewards. As she does this, she works hard to create a team environment of equity and inclusion.

Dana plans to continue to build on the excellent work done by the District to support community-driven solutions to our most pressing environmental challenges, and is excited to implement the 2021-2025 Strategic Plan.

“I believe when we take care of our land and waterways, we also contribute to the health of people, our communities, and our economy.” – Dana Coggon
