Sacred Stories: Indigenous-led Conservation of Lands and Waterways
Please join the Center for American Progress, Native Americans in Philanthropy, and the Biodiversity Funders Group online for a special event to hear from Native leaders from the Santa Clara Pueblo and the Nez Perce Tribe working at the critical intersection of climate, conservation, and land management, as well as to listen to an opening blessing by traditional singers and drummers.
Native Americans in Philanthropy (NAP) and the Center for American Progress are working together to support a conservation agenda driven by Indigenous traditional ecological leadership and storied knowledge of our lands and waterways. In November 2022, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the Biden administration awarded a historic number of grants to Indigenous-led conservation projects and Tribal Nations as part of the America the Beautiful challenge, which were leveraged with funding from NAP’s Tribal Conservation Fund and with support from Biodiversity Funders Group members. These Native leaders are doing innovative and critical work that draws on long-held knowledge and conservation practices that can help restore our lands and mitigate the impacts of climate change.
