Tribal Climate Knowledge guides us all 

North Dakota Badlands

In April, Gwen and James presented at the Affiliated Tribes of the Northwest Indians Tribal Climate Leaders Summit in Washington. Among the 500 people representing 120 Tribal Nations in attendance, a common theme emerged: food sovereignty practices are a critical means of climate change adaptation, biodiversity protection and cultural resilience. On the ground, Tribes and First Nations prioritize food sovereignty activities as a preeminent means of climate change mitigation, adaptation and biodiversity protection. Tribal Nations are reinvigorating generations of proven Indigenous Knowledge known to preserve and heal ecosystems through cultural practices—work that supports us all.
