What: The Summit will engage Tribal leaders, citizens, staff, youth and collaborators in conversation about navigating the cultural, economic, and social challenges of implementing clean energy projects. Our goals include:

  • Ensure that Tribes have the information, support, capacity and resources necessary to plan for and implement Tribal energy projects.
  • Increase Tribal awareness of opportunities and challenges faced by other Tribes in developing energy projects and when partnering with outside partners for planning, policy development and project implementation.
  • Improving project success by appropriately engaging and consulting with Tribes.
  • Assess Tribal needs interests, and priorities related to energy sovereignty, while providing listening opportunities for intertribal collaboration to move those priorities forward.
