Tribes in the upper Midwest have been at the forefront of developing novel strategies to respond to climate change, mitigate threats to critical ecosystems, protect traditional subsistence and harvesting practices, and advance Tribal resource, energy, and food sovereignty. At this CLE, we will hear from a panel of individuals working on reservations, in state government, and in the treaty-ceded territories to develop food and resource sovereignty plans that are responsive to present environmental and policy conditions and anticipate likely climate change impacts. Our panel will touch on issues of treaty law, food safety protocols and agricultural policy, renewable energy development, and state/tribal cooperation around environmental initiatives. This CLE is co-hosted by the Minnesota American Indian Bar Association and the MSBA Environmental, Natural Resources, and Energy Law Section.
