Purpose

Building on a strong tradition of collaboration among scientists, practitioners, indigenous people, and students, the College of Menominee Nation Sustainable Development Institute (CMN SDI) coordinated a second offering of its Shifting Seasons summit aimed at tribes and climate change. This summit was developed to specifically unite the Northeast Climate Science Center (NE CSC) with American Indian/indigenous practitioners and scientists to better communicate the resources available through the NE CSC, the overall mission of the CSC network, and also to provide CSC participants an opportunity to network with and learn more about tribal cultural, social, environmental, and economic issues related to climate change. The Summit provided an opportunity to gain introductory and more advanced climate change adaptation planning skills and information, identify next steps for adaptation, and make connections between tribes and academic/governmental climate change programs that can provide the tools and resources that tribes need.
