Announcing the Elders’ Indigenous Climate Fellowship!

We are excited to share that Sacred Places Institute for Indigenous Peoples and Climate Science Alliance have partnered to launch the Elders’ Indigenous Climate Fellowship! Read the details of this unique opportunity on today's blog.

The Climate Science Alliance team is excited to share the launch of a new initiative with our partners at Sacred Places Institute for Indigenous Peoples (SPI). The Elders' Indigenous Climate Fellowship is a unique opportunity to provide support for a Tribal Elder to participate, advise, and support the Climate Science Alliance team and partners to elevate and incorporate the critical voice, perspective, and deep knowledge from Indigenous communities into projects and programs.

This Fellowship would not have been possible without the vision and leadership of SPI and we look forward to continued collaboration that helps to create, initiate, and advance projects and programming that supports and promotes Tribal resilience in southern California and beyond.

Sacred Places Institute for Indigenous Peoples (SPI) is an Indigenous-led, community-based organization located in the ancestral homelands of the Tongva People in Los Angeles. SPI advocates for environmental, social and cultural justice and works locally, regionally, and globally to build the capacity of Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples to protect sacred lands, waters, and cultures. The SPI team works closely with Native Nations, Elders, traditional cultural practitioners, Indigenous organizations, environmental justice groups, youth, and more to protect environmentally and culturally significant places, practices, and ideologies and create paradigm shifts that support environmentally and socially just systems that assure the continuation of Indigenous cultures for all time.
