1998. Building Effective Land Management Processes | Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation.Abstract

This report examines the management of lands within the exterior boundaries f the Yakama Indian Nation's Reservation. The key difficulties confronting the Yakama Nation's land managers include: complications caused by checkerboard land ownership, significant amounts of unsued agricultural land, a challenging regulatory enforcement environment, and indifference or hostility from external political actors. While the Yakama Indian Nation and its land use agencies have - in the face of these many difficulties - built a strong foundation for effective land management, significant work remains if the YIN is going to approach complete fulfillment of its goals.
