    The federal government’s lack of action on climate change adaptation has spurred tribes and states alike to develop their own climate change adaptation plans—without federal intrusion. The inherent sovereignty exercised by tribes combined with their strong connection to the land and environment has prompted the development of a number of truly robust and innovative climate change adaptation plans.

    Join Mike Durglo, Tribal Preservation Department Head at the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribe, Jana Ganion, Director of Sustainability and Government Affairs for Blue Lake Rancheria, and Michael Walleri, attorney for the Alaska Native Village of Newtok, who will share the experiences of three tribes which have emerged as leaders in climate change adaptation. Our distinguished panelists will relate their experience in developing and implementing climate plans tailored to the needs of individual tribes, discuss lessons learned, and explore the road ahead for America’s indigenous peoples as they address the challenges and opportunities presented by a warming planet.

    The panel will be moderated by Pilar Thomas, Of Counsel at Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie, where her practice focuses on tribal clean energy, economic development and environmental law.

    Sponsored by:
    Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources, and the Section's Native American Resources Committee and the Climate Change, Sustainable Development, and Ecosystems Committee.
