350 Spokane’s climate activists and primary audience live and work on the aboriginal territories historically cared for by indigenous people. The surrounding tribal nations include: Spokane, Kalispel, Coeur D’Alene, Umatilla, Nez Perce, Kootenai and the twelve bands of nations of the Colville Confederated Tribes which include: Arrow Lakes, Colville, Okanogan, Moses Columbia, Wenatchi, Entiat, Chelan, Methow, Nespelem, Sanpoil, Nez Perce, Palus, and Chief Joseph Band of Indians.

In our climate activism, we hope to honor and complement their history of exemplary environmental stewardship. 350 Spokane would be honored to join efforts with the surrounding Tribal Nations in protecting our mother-earth by working together to have a clean and renewable energy, cleaner transportation/transit efforts, and a sustainable healthy environment by working withthe four elements: wind, water, earth, and sun. It would be an honor to work with the surrounding Tribal Nations in protecting our future generations to come.
