For generations, Native American tribes have practiced sustainability and environmental preservation. Today, with over 5% of the nations natural resources located on tribal lands, native communities have the opportunity to share sustainable practices and help facilitate renewable energy development on and off reservation lands.
In its third year, the Inter-Tribal Energy & Tech Tour has gained recognition as the nation's first summer camp committed to educating tomorrow’s Native American tribal leadership on energy, technology, and partnership potential. The Tour provides 30 students the opportunity to join in a memorable 7-day road tour of inspiring native and non-native projects and places.
With your help, the 2015 Inter-Tribal Energy & Tech Tour students will be given a once in a lifetime opportunity to:
- Travel by branded bus through 3 states to visit energy and technology sites in Oregon, California, Nevada, and Arizona.
- Learn about renewable energy, tribal utilities, smart grid, carbon offsets, energy-efficiency, data centers, and career opportunities in energy & tech.
- Collaborate and build lasting friendships with tribal youth from other tribes!
