Climate Change Awareness

Salmon Defense supported the First Stewards Climate Change Symposium hosted by the western Washington coastal treaty tribes. The symposium convened leaders at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian, Washington, D.C., to bear witness to and communicate the impacts of climate change on indigenous peoples and cultures.

The culmination of coastal cultures, place-based knowledge and Western science assembled the “First Stewards” organization. Salmon Defense was honored to be a partner in the First Stewards Symposium and we look forward to future events.
