This is the first webinar in a series focused on the Status of Tribes and Climate Change (STACC) report, a new report written by a working group and convened by the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) Tribes & Climate Change Program. STACC seeks to celebrate and honor the voices of Indigenous peoples across the U.S. to increase understanding of Tribal lifeways, cultures, and worldviews; the climate change impacts Tribes are experiencing; the solutions they are implementing; and ways that all of us can support Tribes in adapting to our changing world.

Over 90 authors from different entities including the authors of 34 personal Tribal narratives contributed to the publication of the first STACC Report. This report was the first of its kind and was written for diverse audiences including Tribal managers, leaders, and community members; the authors of future National Climate Assessments; federal and state agencies and decision makers; and non-governmental organizations. We are pleased that our following relatives and colleagues were able to join us.

  • Dara Marks-Marino, WattTime, Environmental Justice Analyst & former ITEP team member and STACC Report Lead
  • Kelsey Morales, ITEP Sr. Community Program Coordinator and STACC report co-author
