ABOUT THE 2019 TRIBAL WATER SUMMIT

The Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians (ATNI) and the University of Idaho’s College of Law are hosting a two-day Tribal Water Summit at the Menard Law Building at the University of Idaho’s College of Law on September 5th and 6th, 2019. The goals of the 2019 Tribal Water Summit are to bring together a diverse group of leaders, scientists, policy analysts, and community citizens to exchange knowledge about water challenges experienced in the Pacific Northwest, and to hold discussions about potential solutions in the 21st Century.

WHY A TRIBAL WATER SUMMIT?

We recognize that water is a highly critical and invaluable resource for many tribal communities and is a resource that is at the heart of tribal culture, spirituality, and society. Tribal communities view their relationship to the water and other natural resources as one of stewardship. This stewardship is a legacy that has been handed down from one generation to the next for countless generations. The key principle in the stewardship approach is “to leave the resource better than when you found it.” Today, stewardship to water and natural resources is becoming difficult as the demands and pressures on these resources increases.
