This highlight reel from our 2023 Tribal Energy Equity Summit provides insight into the tremendous need for the Alliance and features many of the tribal and federal partners who are working alongside us toward our mission of energy sovereignty for Native American tribes.

In our commitment to supporting tribes in their self-determined pursuit of clean energy, the Alliance is creating an online hub brimming with timely and relevant tools and information. This includes the development of crucial resources like a comprehensive federal and state funding database, and a tribal energy project capital stack planning tool.
The Alliance hosts a series of events throughout the year, each meticulously crafted to transcend the conventional notion of gatherings. These events serve as purposeful forums, uniting tribes with subject matter experts and reliable resource providers. Our aim is not merely to convene, but to actively address challenges and leverage opportunities for tribal clean energy development. Rooted in Indigenous cultural values, these gatherings cultivate connections that extend beyond business — they foster connections that are not only useful but deeply meaningful.

Leveraging our robust connections in Washington, the Alliance Policy team champions fair energy policies and equitable utility practices. Acting as a crucial conduit, we facilitate the exchange of energy-related information between federal and tribal governments. In collaboration with our technical team, the Alliance Policy team provides invaluable support to tribes through expert project planning and grant writing services, delivered at no cost. Our goal is to enhance the success rate of tribal applications for federal funding, ensuring that valuable resources are directed toward tribal initiatives with the greatest impact.
