On Thursday, Dec. 15, the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) and the US Corps of Army Engineers San Francisco District are hosting an indigenous-led webinar about flood risk management and community resilience at 11 a.m. ITEP was established at Northern Arizona University in 1992 to strengthen tribal capacity and sovereignty in environmental and natural resource management through culturally relevant education, research, partnerships, and policy-based services. This event will feature speakers from Newtok Village, Santee Sioux Nation, and Lisjan Ohlone.

About the webinar:

"Since time immemorial, Indigenous communities have stewarded and thrived along floodplains. Despite of the government policies and practices that tribal communities from floodplains and their ancestral lands, tribal flood risk managers still lead the conversation around whole community flood resilience. Join the Institute of Tribal Environmental Professionals and the San Francisco District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for an indigenous-led discussion on community resilience and flood risk management. Panelists will share experiences and perspectives on recent flooding, hazard mitigation, and sea-level rise adaptation."
