Central to Indian Country’s climate movement is kinship building. Through honoring traditional systems of gatherings, many Tribes and Native-led organizations are fostering a growing number of partnerships to address climate impacts across tribal, state, and federal jurisdictions. To support climate work that is centered around justice, regional and national tribal and Native-led organizations have been convening tribal leaders, community members, and key non-tribal partners to share resources and data, and collaboratively discuss a wide scope of climate-related challenges and opportunities.

Supported through the Regional Dialogues in Indian Country grant program, this report aims to bring attention to policy and funding barriers and opportunities, models, and community perspectives that may be useful to Tribes and Native communities looking to host discussions, engage in political advocacy efforts, and navigate municipal, state, and federal administrative routes to address the impacts of climate change regionally.
