This session is the second webinar in the WHCNAA’s 2023 Tribal and Indigenous Climate Speaker Series and is designed to educate federal agency personnel about consulting and coordinating with Indian Tribes, Native Hawaiians, and other Indigenous Peoples in our combined effort to combat the climate crisis.
The presenters are two leaders working on the front lines of historic preservation and climate readiness—Michael Durglo Jr., Department Head of the Tribal Historic Preservation Department of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, and Shasta Gaughen, Ph.D., Environmental Director and Tribal Historic Preservation Officer at the Pala Band of Mission Indians. They will share lessons learned through their experiences in climate change adaptation planning, how their expertise in historic preservation influences that work, and how federal representatives can collaborate to remove barriers to more effective climate planning.

Also, learn what steps you should take to become a part of the preservation community.
What can be done if continued development, climate, and environmental issues, and other factors threaten to erase a black community’s cultural heritage? Located in the Lowcountry region of South Carolina, the Gullah Geechee Islands are home to an African American community descended from formerly enslaved people. Unlike most other communities in the US, the Gullah maintain a majority of their African language and cultural heritage. However, the Gullah culture is facing extinction as a result of continued growth, environmental difficulties, and a variety of other negative circumstances. This webinar addresses the islands’ history, what is happening there now, and the work being done to preserve the culture.
