The time is here. In this historic moment, the stars have aligned – now is the time to work toward real solutions for protecting Tribal sacred sites. This event will be a powerful incubator of possibilities as we bring together Tribal Nations, legislators, and agency leadership & staff to make change a reality. If we and the earth are made from the same stuff, our health and survival are linked to taking care of places.
- Connecting to place.While we work towards coming together safely again, we will offer virtual experiences to connect with the land and those who hold it sacred, grounding our purpose.
- What is.What is the state of current sacred sites protection in the U.S.? What is the existing policy framework and what are the gaps from the Tribal perspective?
- What should be.In a world where anything is possible, what is needed to close the gaps? What solutions would truly address the issues and protect places that define us?
- We will catalyze real progress by defining recommendations and deliberate, measurable steps forward for preservation and reconciliation.
