Biden Announces Plan to Help Tribal Communities Respond to Climate Crisis, Including Relocation

HeadlineDec 01, 2022

President Biden announced new investments for Indigenous communities, including $135 million to help 11 tribal communities “severely impacted” by climate change. Three of those communities are planning on relocating altogether. Biden spoke Wednesday at the White House Tribal Nations Summit.

President Joe Biden: “There are tribal communities at risk of being washed away, washed away by superstorms, rising sea levels and wildfires raging.”

Biden also vowed to protect Spirit Mountain, or Avi Kwa Ame, in Nevada, a sacred site for the Fort Mojave Tribe and others. Advocates have been pushing for years to designate the area as a national monument.
