This process can work in many ways. This website is a conduit for the connections you dream up.
For example...What do you want? Do you want to gather or hunt once a year, in the fall or spring, or all year round? Do you want extended time at a location? Are you looking for a place that can be accessible all the time without checking in? Do you have ceremony that needs to happen somewhere at certain times? Is it necessary that the land tender leaves during this time? Do you simply need to sit and listen to the land? Do you have commitments to a certain place that you'd like to keep? How can you tend those commitments within the system of land "ownership" that exist right now? What are things that a land tender could do to make you feel more comfortable accessing the land?
There are many possibilities and it is up to you to work out the details of an arrangement.
If you are a land tender, think about what you are willing to offer freely? Are there questions or concerns? This is ok and will be a part of the discussions you have with a person, or persons that wants greater access to their traditional homelands. By agreeing to talk with each other, you are taking the first step in a process of relationship building. Whatever happens next is up to you.*
