Tribal Environmental Professionals Examine Climate Impacts On Indigenous People

Screenshot 2021-09-22 9.15.22 AM.png

The effects of climate change on indigenous people is well-demonstrated in our region.

The warm waters in streams can kill tons of salmon, either directly or through disease, cutting the people of tribes--in the lower Klamath River country, for example--from a focus of food and culture.

The Status of Tribes and Climate Change (STACC) Report compiles issues like these in one volume. The report came out in August, the work of the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP).

Ann Marie Chischilly is the overall director of the institute, Karen Cozzetto is the co-manager of the unit focused on Tribes and Climate Change. They visit with details on the report.
