As a planner and researcher for communities here in the Northwest and the Western United States (71 Tribes); Angelena has always believed that Indigenous people are stewards of the lands; the air, water, and soils, we must protect Mother Earth. Climate Change has become a symptom of over using the Earth’s resources. For the next seven generations and beyond, we must all learn to become stewards of our home, Mother Earth. We must learn to become more sustainable human beings and use technology instead of pulling death out of the earth (fossil fuels) for fuel, and learn to harness the four elements: air, water, soils, and fire (sun) to save our Mother Earth. She is very passionate about our Climate and is honored to be working with 350 Spokane towards renewable/sustainable energy, climate change policy, and looking forward to working with 350 to reduce human beings carbon-footprint. She believes, like the world mobilized for the Covid-19-pandemic; we too can and must mobilize for Climate Change.

He is determined to do all that he can to leave a better planet for his children to inherit.
