This workshop is designed for Native youth (middle to high school). We will teach Native youth about the impact of climate change. And, how the extraction industries are affecting our environment and contributes to global warming, rising sea levels, extreme weather change, and decline of the salmon. How they can make a difference by drafting a resolution they can present to their tribal councils, local government councils, organizations, and/or schools.
The objectives for this workshop include:
- Enhance the Native youth’s knowledge about climate change
- Support treaty rights and tribal sovereignty
- How they can become active in local efforts to ‘Protect the Sacred’
