Indigenous Community Engagement on Environmental Issues
Through the UCI Community Resilience Projects, the Office of Sustainability fosters interest in and dialogue about tribal community engagement on environmental issues at UC Irvine. In 2013, Angela Mooney D’Arcy (Acjachemen), director, Sacred Places Institute for Indigenous Peoples, coordinated this work on behalf of the UCI Sustainability Initiative. In 2016-17, UCI graduate student Noemi Linares-Ramirez (Latina-Navajo), served as the Sustainability Initiative’s Fellow on Indigenous Environmental Issues. Collaborators have historically included the Sacred Places Institute for Indigenous Peoples, UC Irvine Law’s Center for Land, Environment, and Natural Resources (CLEANR), the American Indian Resource Program, and the Steele/Burnand Anza-Borrego Desert Research Center.
