By restoring our ecological resilience, we build economic, community, and cultural resilience for today and future generations.

The Tribal Marine Stewards Network is an alliance of Tribal Nations working collaboratively to steward, protect, and restore the ocean and coastal resources within our ancestral territories. For thousands of years, we relied upon our ocean and coastal territories to provide for us. In return, we took care of these places through traditional knowledge and management practices.

We are reclaiming our right to manage and steward our ocean and coastal territories. We seek to establish long-term, consistent engagement with state and federal agencies while implementing Indigenous Traditional Knowledge and Tribal Science into management practices.
