Tribal Perspectives on Resilience and Climate Change in The Intermountain West
May 19 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT
Landscapes and ecosystems are changing due to a combination of human modifications and climate change. Tribes, who have lived in the Intermountain West for millennia, have observed and documented changes that include decreasing fish and wildlife numbers and availability of traditional foods. As a result, they are working to enact policies and programs to protect and restore these ecosystems. In this panel, representatives from tribes across the Intermountain West will discuss what actions their respective tribes are focused on and their perspectives on climate change in the Intermountain West.
- Danny Stone – Policy Analyst for the Fish and Wildlife Department, Shoshone-Bannock Tribe
- Aaron Miles – Manager of the Nez Perce Department of Natural Resources, Nez Perce Tribe
- Laura Laumatia – Climate Research and Policy Analyst for the Coeur d’Alene Tribe
