Tribal and Indigenous People

Tribal and indigenous populations have suffered numerous environmental problems on their land and often do not have the resources to clean up their land and waters, train members of the tribe, or complete the research necessary to understand the environmental problems that affect their way of life. Green Strategies develops training opportunities for tribes and indigenous populations on such issues as natural resource damage assessment (NRDA), pollution prevention and sustainable building practices. We also perform research on the extent of environmental contamination on tribal lands, and help tribes and indigenous populations find sources of funding for environmental cleanup and remediation.
