Tribal Lands & Environment Forum (TLEF)
Thank you for attending the 2021 TLEF. We were honored to have over 900 people register for this year’s event! We had 150 presenters, and uploaded over 400 different files – recordings, sessions, and handouts. We hope you found the 2021 TLEF interesting, fun, and maybe even enlightening at times. And we hope you were able to reconnect with some friends and colleagues you may not have seen during these challenging times. Please look in the "Past TLEF" tab to find links to all of this year’s recorded session as well as information on where to find recordings of all of this year’s presentations.

We are currently planning the 2022, which will take place August 8 through 11, 2022, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We’ll be sending out more details later on, and do hope to see you all there!
