2014 Indigenous Sustainability Conference

The 2014 Indigenous Sustainability Conference was a two-day dialogue that brought leading experts and tribal leaders together to examine and discuss historic and modern practices for a better tomorrow. The conference explored potential partnerships, between ASU and Indigenous scholars and sustainability scientists to collaborate on research and publications that acknowledge and value American Indian and Indigenous models of sustainability. 

Globally and locally, Indigenous nations are developing and advancing their communities while re-inventing their cultures to meet their needs. Traditional knowledge, leadership, and strategic planning sustain their lifeways. Arizona State University has a strong presence of American Indian scholars who are well versed on tribal peoples and nations' survival in an ever changing and challenging natural, political and economic environment.
