"Our climate adaptation plan is focused on our community, on our youth, and learning from our elders. The knowledge and memories, the different ways of knowing - these are the foundations of our resilience. If we don’t hold on to our stories, are unfamiliar with our sense of place, and don’t take care of our land, it is a loss to our youth, to our people, to our history. The ideas and strategies laid out in this plan will help us continue to be resilient in the face of change."

Excerpt from Letter from the Tribal Chairman, Fred Nelson Jr.
