GLIFWC Staff and Partners Receive 2019 Climate Adaptation Leadership Award
The Tribal Adaptation Menu utilizes indigenous knowledge, language and history to plan meaningful climate adaptation action. Drawing from the experience and knowledge of a diverse group of Tribal Members and natural resource professionals, the authors of the Tribal Adaptation Menu have created a resource that recognizes the importance of indigenous languages, culture and history in climate adaptation planning for native communities and their Non-Tribal partners. GLIFWC thanks all of its partnering organizations and entities that have shared their valuable work and insight. For more information about the Tribal Climate Adaptation Menu and its partners, please visit the GLIFWC website.
“This is indeed a positive sign that forward thinking and protection of the resources for seven generations to come is an ideology that is spreading. Chi-miigwech (thank you) to all the Tribal communities and agencies that assist in the exercise, protection and revitalization of these traditional life ways and practices,” said GLIFWC Executive Administrator Michael J. Isham.
