Tribal Lands Climate Conference

Date: 12/5/2006 to 12/6/2006

Location: Somerton, AZ

Wind Powering America will be hosting an exhibit.
The Cocopah Indian Nation and the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) have partnered to host this conference — the first event of its kind — on the Cocopah Reservation. Indigenous people are among the first to experience and document the impacts of climate change by comparing their historical experiences and knowledge to the natural cycles and resource availability they observe today. NWF is reaching out to the continent's first inhabitants to collect their stories and first-hand, on-the-ground accounts about the natural resources that have sustained changes due to carbon emissions and climate change related events. The conference will gather representatives from over 50 tribes from throughout the Southwest, Northwest, Midwest, and Alaska, and political leaders, climate scientists, and NGOs to exchange ideas on proactively addressing climate change. With thousands of years of traditional knowledge and connections to the environment, Native Americans are important eyewitnesses to our changing planet and can help shape how Americans address and generate active responses to combat climate change.
