This year for National Native American Heritage Month, we celebrate Indigenous people’s past and present leadership + contributions to the environmental and social justice movement. We encourage you to follow and support the following organizations and take time to learn about Native American History beyond November. 

  • Utah Pandos: Advocating for Indigenous sovereignty across Turtle Island
  • Restoring Ancestral Winds:Great Basin Native Coalition | Educating Indigenous communities on issues around stalking, domestic, sexual, family and dating violence.
  • Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake: UICSL’s mission is to serve The People by honoring Native cultures, strengthening health and wellness programs and cultivating community.

     

  • Utah Diné Bikéyah: UDB, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to healing of people and the Earth through supporting Indigenous communities and protecting their culturally significant, ancestral lands. 

What does this have to do with Environmental Policy?

We are strong believers in collaboration and ensuring that our policy decisions and writing are created with the best intentions to support communities. We will continue to listen, collaborate and find community-based solutions to solve the biggest environmental threats that Utah faces.
