This first gathering of chiefs, governors and presidents of indigenous sovereign nations at the University of California with scholars from CSU and UC campuses will help inform the environmental decision-making process and influence governance outcomes and solutions throughout the entire United States,starting with the first indigenous peoples.

The tribal leaders have been invited to speak on the most urgent environmental needs of their tribes, such as protecting water, mineral, fishing, or sovereignty rights.

Native American faculty representing the disciplines related to law, environmental studies, and history from all University of California and California State University campuses as well as directors of American Indian Studies and American Indian Associations on each campus have been invited to contribute their expertise to the conference.

Examples of concerns may include:
o access to clean water

o impacts of climate change
o wildlife/fisheries reductions
o disruption of ecosystems
o usurpation of sovereignty
o territorial claims
