Hello Friends in Philanthropy, 

We would like to share an opportunity for you to join us Thursday, June 2nd at 1PM ET/10AM PT for Leveraging Philanthropy & Federal Funding to Advance Tribal Energy Sovereignty co-hosted by Indigenized Energy InitiativeRed Cloud Renewable, and Native Americans in Philanthropy with a special address by U.S. Secretary of the Interior, Deb Haaland

Indigenous leaders and Indigenous-led organizations are initiating and decolonizing renewable energy. Their practices offer much-needed effective, sustainable alternatives to resource extraction, but funding continues to be inequitable. This important webinar is moderated by NAP CEO, Erik Stegman and will cover important topics such as:

What is Tribal Energy Sovereignty, and why is it important amidst Just Transition and Clean Energy Movements?

How can foundations best support this critical work?

How can government agencies and foundations work together to leverage the power of their dollars to ensure as many tribes as possible in the US benefit from these renewable technologies?

 Speakers include:  

  • Wahleah Johns, Director, Office of Indian Energy U.S. Department of Energy
  • Chief Henry Red Cloud, Executive Director, Red Cloud Renewable Energy Center
  • Cody Two Bears, Co-Founder, Indigenized Energy Initiative
