Renewable energies and electric vehicles are all the rage when it comes to shifting the energy economy to one based on clean renewable energy sources. While electrifying the energy and transportation sector are crucial for reducing the collective carbon footprint it does not come without consequences. The minerals and metals needed for electrification are often extracted from Indigenous and Tribal homelands, leaving communities and landscapes at risk of losing sacred lands, cultural practices and traditions and contaminating important natural resources. Join the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals for presentations followed by Q&A to explore the complexities of mining on Indigenous lands to advance the clean energy economy.
