The Tribes and First Nations Climate Summit brought together over 200 tribal leaders, staff, and tribal members, agency staff, students and practitioners to advance tribal climate change programs, strategies, policy and action by discussing current issues related to three key themes: Traditional Knowledges, Tribal Climate Resiliency, and Policy. Over 40 tribes from across the nation and Canada were in attendance. Organizers will be developing proceedings from the event in the coming weeks. Below are a few articles about the summit:
