ILTF for a live Question & Answer session on mapping and GIS

August 30 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm CDT

Maps are a critical tool to help people communicate by sharing data related to places in the world. Maps and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) also help people to better understand patterns and relationships, identify geographic context, and set priorities.

Please join ILTF for a live Question & Answer session on mapping and GIS. This online Town Hall-style event will be held on Tuesday, August 30 from 6 to 7 p.m. (Central Daylight Time). It is free to participate but registration is required in advance.

Landowners won’t want to miss this opportunity to get their questions answered about how to use mapping and geospatial data to better understand issues affecting their Indian land. Comments and questions will be welcome throughout the presentation.

David Bartecchi is the Executive Director for the Colorado-based nonprofit Village Earth, the organization that developed the Native Land Information System (, a vast repository of learning resources, information and data for the benefit of Native people. Bartecchi received a master’s degree in Cultural Anthropology from Colorado State University where he now teaches. Bartecchi has worked extensively on land issues with grassroots groups on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and in other Indigenous communities.
