The Anchor Forest framework combines opportunities to help landowners, communities, agencies, and tribes achieve landscape-scale projects that address declining forest health conditions with cost-effective solutions.
"So if you want to maintain the forest, if you want to maintain the habitat for fish and wildlife or animals, you want to keep clean water, clean air, all that those kinds of things you have to focus on what could be done on the landscape, not what I can do on a single piece of property." –Gary Morishima, Quinault Nation
“Forest management is very important to our tribe and it has been, for a long time. So we realize the value of that but we also need to still insure that our borders and the forest around it, which is also our traditional territory, aren’t lost to insects and disease or wildfire.” –Chasity Watt Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation.

In this seven-minute video produced by Milkhaus for the Clyfford Still Museum, art historians Patricia Failing and Michael Holloman discuss lesser-known work created by Clyfford Still at the Colville Indian Reservation in Washington during the 1930s. This video was created for a summer 2015 exhibition at the Museum devoted to this topic. Approximately thirty original works on paper and eight oil-on-canvas compositions by Clyfford Still comprised the exhibition, along with sketch-oriented materials, related photographs, and examples of the artist’s self-described “interpretive studies." The exhibition and its catalogue of new scholarship explore how Still’s time with indigenous people of northeastern Washington State contributed to a tragic sensibility realized in his later work. The illustrated catalogue is available at clyffordstillmuseum.org/shop.
