Analysis: Conservationist pushes back on call to turn over US NPs to tribal ownership

A recent article Return the National Parks to the Tribes in Atlantic Magazine by David Treuer is worth a detailed review because it represents a common set of inaccurate assumptions and historical imprecision about the relationship of conservation, national parks and Native Americans. Rather than celebrate parks as one of the best ideas in America, Treuer denigrates them.

Themes similar to Treuer have appeared in other publications recently. Many in the WOKE social justice movement advocate the transfer of national parks to tribal entities.
