Shasta Gaughen (Pala Band of Mission Indians) and I, on behalf of the Tribal Climate Health Project, are pleased to invite you to register to join us for two upcoming learning opportunities. As always, our goal is to help you access knowledge and resources that you can apply within your Tribe to better brace your community for the future. Please feel free to share this with your networks.
1. Getting Ahead of Climate Trauma (starting April 21): This 3-part tribal wellbeing adaptation webinar mini-series features expert guest speakers and interactive peer learning opportunities to arm tribal-serving professionals with knowledge and skills to build psychosocial, emotional, and spiritual resilience in tribal communities before the next wildfire, flood, or other emergency hits.

2. Accessing Tribal Climate and Health Resilience Data (May 5): At this webinar, we will share the results of recent BIA-funded work aimed at making it easier for California tribes to access useful data to inform decisions about climate and health resilience and adaptation. Attendees will be introduced to tools to support efficient fact-finding for their vulnerability assessment efforts, including a simple protocol for requesting data on climate-relevant health indicators from our project partners at the California Tribal Epidemiology Center.
