Each summit featured Tribal leaders, environmental health practitioners, subject matter experts, and federal partners engaging on topics relevant to each region. The summits intended to connect people from different professional backgrounds and Tribes, communities, federal agencies, Tribal organizations and state and local entities to address various environmental health and environmental justice issues affecting Indian Country. Each summit was designed for participants to:

  • Exchange knowledge,
  • Share best practices,
