Increasing Environmental Concerns for Tribal Communities
Greetings Tribal Members,
We are submitting this letter out of dire concern for our tribe and future generations. Over the
past several years, we have been involved in various justice issues, including environmental. In
this, we have seen many critical situations occurring throughout numerous tribal communities
across this nation as the oil and gas industry continues to expand their goals of oil and gas
extraction and transport. We had hoped that we would have more time to prepare; however,
we feel that the issue is now of such importance that it is time to bring this to the attention of
our entire tribe.
