It is likely renewable energy will power our homes, businesses, and potentially even our economy in the near future. Indian Country contains 5% of the land and 10% of the undeveloped natural resources in the United States that could be used for renewable energy projects, but there are many obstacles tribes must overcome to bring these projects to fruition. At Native Nation Events’ Fifth Annual Renewable Energy Projects in Indian Country Conference, May 21-22, 2012 at the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, AZ, a forum of tribal leaders and professionals will address these issues. Discussions will include: increasing access to private capital, feasibility studies, and how we can create sustainable and environmentally responsible economies with renewable energy projects for the future generations of Indian Country.
The Third Annual Native American Health Care Conference in conjunction with Healthy Heart Symposium will address health care disparities in Native American Communities via the structural causes of health care inequality, the social determinants of health, and their physical effects in an intimate educational and networking forum. The topics of discussion, for this two-day Las Vegas event, will include: financing health care facilities, the effects of pollution and the environment on Native health, the social determinants of health, traditional diet, Native American nursing, dental health, cardiovascular health, and cancer in Indian Country.

Clean energy is flowing steadily in Indian Country. According to a 2010 National Wildlife Federation report, alternative energy on native lands is the key to creating jobs, conserving resources, and adapting to climate change. Solar, Wind, and Biomass are becoming increasingly popular sources of revenue on and off the reservation. With a surplus of 95 million acres of land, tribes are becoming more and more invested in green energy projects.
Native Americans are playing a vital role in the conservation movement in The United States. As our country’s oldest naturalists, American Indians are aligned with the ideals of the alternative energy movement. With the use of green energy, tribes are generating a large profit while helping to restore a sense of balance in nature.
“Tribal households pay significantly more in home energy expenses than other Americans,” said Bob Gruenig, senior policy analyst at the National Tribal Environmental Council.“The vast potential on tribal lands to generate clean energy from renewable resources means that Indian Tribes can help to provide for their own energy needs, generate clean power for a new energy future in Indian Country, and put America on the path to energy independence.”
In addition to a wide variety of economic development topics, our upcoming Alaska and Northwest Native American Economic Development Conference will feature panels that discuss the benefits of renewable energy. We will hear case studies of alternative energy projects that have succeeded on the reservation, and provide networking opportunities between green energy professionals and tribal decision makers.
