South Central Climate Science Center: Tribal Climate Change Variability Workshops

Tribal Profiles
Year Published

In the South Central US, particularly severe climate impacts are projected to occur. With support from the South Central Climate Adaptation Science Center (SC CASC) and Southern Climate Impacts Planning Program (SCIPP), the University of Oklahoma (OU) hosted a series of five intertribal workshops on climate impacts. Paulette Blanchard, a Master’s candidate at OU who played an instrumental role in organizing the workshops, brought together native filmmakers with tribal participants to discuss ways that native people can document their experiences and challenges with climate impacts. These workshops also provided an opportunity for tribes and governmental agencies such as the SC CASC to establish working relationships.
