Protecting Tribal Land, Preserving Natural Resources

Climate change is real. That’s not news to elders in Wisconsin’s Native American communities. They see it, they feel it, and they are taking action to deal with it. “Our elders have watched climate change on their tribal lands from when they were young. They have seen the landscape change over their lifetimes,” says Bryan Van Stippen, Program Director for the National Indian Carbon Coalition (NICC). “We can’t go into the forests and find traditional plants and medicines because they are no longer growing in those regions. We need to do something about that.”
