The Puyallup Tribe of Indians and the Affiliated Tribe of Northwest Indians (ATNI) invites you to our first Redefine. Reframe. Reclaim Summit.
The Summit provides us with an opportunity to examine the impact and implications of the Tacoma LNG plant that’s taken center stage for the Puyallup Tribe as they fight to preserve and protect their traditional and cultural lands.
The Summit will feature leading voices and expert advocates that are working in partnership with Tribes to protect our land, water, natural resources and communities from the impacts of short sighted fossil fuel projects across the Northwest Indian Country.

The summit is intended to bring together like-minded tribal youth with a passion for water, natural resources, education and social action.

The participants will be exposed to university life, classroom learning, and tribal water culture. The participants will also take field trips to water resources sites.
