Steering Council

 

Together, our Steering Council members are the protectors of our mission, the guiding light of our work, and the sounding board for Land is Life's global network. Respected leaders in their own communities as well as in the wider international indigenous movement, the Steering Council is at the heart of Land is Life's efforts.
