Global Indigenous Council Endorses Colorado Wolf Reintroduction
From the Pagosa Daily Post in Colorado:
This week, the Global Indigenous Council (GIC) declared support for Colorado’s wolf reintroduction ballot measure. GIC members have expressed a deep commitment to ensuring a sustainable future for gray wolves, and the ballot measure manifests the purpose and objective of GIC’s Wolf Treaty.
The GIC was joined by leaders from the Rocky Mountain Tribal Leaders Council and the Great Plains Tribal Chairman’s Association. Led by the GIC, the organizations and their member tribes were instrumental in defeating the Trump Administration in the seminal case, Crow Tribe, et al v. Zinke (/Bernhardt), which returned Endangered Species Act protections to the grizzly bear in Greater Yellowstone, and preserved tribes’ religious freedoms and treaty rights.
