What is the Tribal Water Security Talking Circle? What is it for?

In late 2018, Klamath Tribal Council was contacted by Clarita Lefthand-Begay, PhD Assistant Professor, a Navajo member, at the University of Washington, and Director of the Tribal Water Security Project.  What is the Project? Clarita sought approval from the Klamath Tribal Council, to gather information for a National Tribal survey regarding “Water insecurity impacts on the health and culture of American Indians and Alaska Natives in the United States.”

Now that approval has been finalized, a working Committee consisting of: Secretary Roberta Frost, Taylor Tupper, Kathleen Hill, Missy Hess, and Treasurer Brandi Hatcher, has put forth the information and agenda you see here on page 5. We hope everyone that has comments and ideas about the importance of water will attend.  Subject matter can relate to many different topics such as: Drinking water, water for fish, clean water, water contamination, well water, water tables, culture, health, etc… etc… etc…

We need your water comments for this National Survey.  For more information contact: News Dept: Taylor Tupper 541-783-2219 ext. 147  or
