Sen. Udall: Climate Change Poses 'Grave Threat' to Traditional Subsistence Practiaces in Indian Country

WASHINGTON — On Wednesday, U.S. Senator Tom Udall, vice chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, joined committee Chairman John Hoeven (R-N.D.) in leading an oversight hearing entitled “Keep What You Catch: Promoting Traditional Subsistence Activities in Native Communities.”

In his opening statement, Udall emphasized the role traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) plays in subsistence activities. He noted, “Subsistence not only means nourishing communities with traditional foods, but also feeding generations with traditional knowledge that sustains, grows, and keeps Native communities together.”
