Developing the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Keweenaw Bay Indian Community developed their hazard mitigation plan with guidance from a framework for integrating Indigenous and traditional knowledge and practices into climate adaptation planning.

The Keweenaw Bay Indian Community is concerned with how the impacts from climate change and coastal hazards may disrupt Anishinaabe culture. The community is already being impacted by coastal hazards such as flooding, erosion, legacy mine waste, and extreme temperatures. Dione Price, an environmental specialist, and Rachel Pressley, a regional planner, worked together on the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community’s plan. As they were thinking about a way to facilitate the planning process, one of Rachael's friends, and co-author of the Tribal Climate Adaptation Menu, shared this important written framework with her. The Tribal Climate Adaptation Menu is designed to ensure that adaptation actions are culturally appropriate and community-supported.
