Land and Community Session 3 – Native Tribal Nations Lead on Environmental Stewardship

Tribal Nations and Indigenous communities across America are leading the way in addressing climate change and the greatest environmental challenges of our time.  This session will demonstrate how Tribal Nations are using traditional/Indigenous knowledges (T/IKs) and Western knowledge to create actions and strategies in their climate adaptation and resiliency planning efforts. Our guest speakers will provide examples of what Tribal Nations and Tribal organizations are doing across the country to address climate change impacts. Tribal Nations have sustained their cultural heritage and knowledges that are deeply rooted in the ecosystem which provide inspiration and motivation to ensure that future generations have access to healthy water, soil, and strong wildlife populations.
