Description: 
Cattle have been part of Tohono O'odham culture for over 300 years, but efforts to promote rangeland management on the Tohono O'odham Nation had little success until a community-based rangeland planning project in the Sif Oidak District helped increase understanding of this unique socioecological system and empowered villages to restore and manage their rangelands.DOI:10.2458/azu_rangelands_v27i6_hays
