About the Summit

 

The 2019 Summit provided an opportunity to come together, focus on climate strategies and solutions, and advance Tribal resilience efforts throughout the Southwest and North America. The Summit was an interactive leadership-style retreat with small group breakout sessions, plenary style presentations on Tribal case studies, and a powerful climate training opportunity for student ambassadors.

We were happy to host the 2019 Summit in the beautiful homelands of the Mountain Cahuilla "kaweeyah" Indians. Idyllwild is referred to as "Taqwish Heki" in the Cahuilla language, and once had many Cahuilla villages. It is still frequented today by many Cahuilla as it is a special place to gather foods and medicine.
