Advancing Revitalization in Indian Country: Tribal TAB and the National Tribal Brownfields Working Group
From ITEP Team on August 17th, 2021
This presentation was delivered as part of the Tribal Lands and Environment Forum: Virtual Gathering in August 2021 by Oral Saulters and Eric Sheets with KSU Tribal TAB, and Page Hingst with Santee Sioux Nation of Nebraska.
The National Tribal Brownfields Working Group (NTBWG) is a network of tribal professionals, other revitalization experts, and government employees that are engaged in work with Brownfield sites, tribal lands, and other sites of special concern. These individuals work on protecting indigenous lands, lifeways, water, and community health; catalyzing reuse opportunities; and providing guidance to the Tribal Technical Assistance to Brownfields (Tribal TAB) program, led by the Center for Hazardous Substance Research at Kansas State University. This core group will assist with and help guide the roll-out of the initiative and, importantly, identify key priorities common throughout the country and its regions moving forward. Participants will have access to the information resources, e-tools, experts, peers, and partnerships of Tribal TAB.
