May 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
The White House Council on Native American Affairs Climate Adaptation Subcommittee invites you to join a panel of senior Administration and Indian Country leaders for a discussion of Indigenous Led Community Relocation. The speakers will share lessons learned from their experiences in protecting and relocating their village from the changing climate. Speaker biographies are included on the following page. Please register at the Eventbrite link below. Due to the limited time we have together, we are asking that questions are submitted in advance through the Eventbrite link. This event will be recorded.
This is the fourth webinar in the 2023 Tribal and Indigenous Climate Speaker Series hosted by the White House Council of Native American Affairs Climate Adaptation Subcommittee. This monthly series is designed to educate federal agency personnel about consulting and coordinating with Indian Tribes, Native Hawaiians, and other Indigenous Peoples in our combined effort to combat the climate crises. Each webinar will feature Indigenous speakers and/or federal agencies to share knowledge and experience beneficial to federal employees working on climate adaptation priorities.
