About the Summit
May 16 - 18, 2022
The Fire Within Us
The Southwestern Tribal Climate Change Summit brought together 250 attendees representing both Tribal and non-Tribal communities to focus on the kinship with fire and its role in community, conservation, and climate change adaptation efforts throughout the Southwest and North America.
The 2022 Summit, which was back for a third time after the second event in 2019, was held in the homelands of the Kuupangaxwichem (Cupeño) and Payómkawichum (Luiseño) peoples. We were honored to gather as friends and relatives on their homelands, and sincerely appreciate the time, space, and knowledge shared.
