The Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians (ATNI), National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), United South and Eastern Tribes (USET), and other partners will be hosting the 4th Session of the Virtual National Tribal Leadership Climate Change Summit: Traditional Knowledges and Tribal Sovereignty. The Summit will be held Tuesday, June 8th at 1 PM Eastern (12 PM Central). The focus of this session is to learn about how Traditional Knowledges are defined, preserved, transmitted to future generations, and applied in ways that advance Tribal natural, cultural, and community goals related to climate impacts and resiliency. Explore how Tribal rights and sovereignty form a unique basis for applying Traditional Knowledge and Tribal world views. Weave together learnings from previous summit discussions on climate policy, community resilience, and youth empowerment. More information and the registration link are available on the Summit flyer and the Summit Homepage.
Following this session, on June 9, 2021 at 11 am – 1 pm PST, the National Tribal Leadership Climate Change Summit will Introduce the fourth Youth Session event. This youth track session will follow the same theme of the June main session event, Traditional Knowledge.
