Populations that have least contributed to the driving forces of climate change are most affected by it.   This is especially true for indigenous peoples, whose cultures are often inextricably tied to their land.  As a result, climate change not only threatens land, but cultural identity.

This conference will bring together tribal leadership and members, scientists, scholars, attorneys and activists to discuss climate change threats and challenges faced by indigenous communities.  It will focus on the impacts of climate change on tribal cultural heritage, what solutions are available through the government and legal system and what factors work to limit those solutions.  Attendees will participate in sessions that focus on identifying obstacles and proposing solutions to these challenges.
