This Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) Climate Change Strategic Plan represents an early step towards addressing the impacts of climate change on the Flathead Reservation in Montana. This initiative’s purpose is to improve the Tribal community and Natural Resources resiliency by effectively informing climate change impact planning decisions made by the Tribes. It is designed to initiate collectively beneficial climate change impact mitigation and adaptation solutions.
This process was led by the CSKT Office of Environmental Protection and was assisted by Next Seven Group, LLC. It was completed in collaboration with the Tribes’ administration, elders, scientific leaders, and other stakeholders and experts. Historical information was adapted from the Flathead Reservation Comprehensive Resource Plan and local climate change scenarios were adapted from the Missoula County Climate Action: Creating a Resilient and Sustainable Community report. Traditional Ecological Knowledge was provided by the Salish‐Pend d’Oreille Culture Committee, Kootenai Culture Committee, and Historic Preservation/ Cultural Preservation Department. Local impact assessments on forestry, land, fish, wildlife, water, air, infrastructure, people, and culture were developed by CSKT Tribal Departments and local organizations.
