Native FEWS Alliance

The Native FEWS Alliance is a major NSF-funded project that aims to significantly broaden the participation of Native American and underrepresented students in Food, Energy and Water Systems (FEWS) education and careers to address critical challenges facing their communities. The Alliance brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous scholars from a wide range of disciplines and institutions to design and deploy place-based and experiential learning curricula that combine Indigenous ways of knowing with physical sciences and engineering methodologies. The primary motivation of the Native FEWS Alliance is the promotion of Tribal climate resilience, with a broad range of environmental impacts of climate change that are exacerbating food, energy, and water (FEW) insecurities that require effective solutions identified and implemented by Tribes and Tribal communities.

Native FEWS Alliance partners include:

University of California Berkeley – Alice Agogino, Principal Investigator

University of Arizona – Karletta Chief, co-Principal Investigator
