A Message from the Haury Program

July 11, 2022

In 2020, the Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice, Haury Program, established the Tribal Resilience Initiative in response to the water sustainability challenges faced by Indian Country due to COVID-19. The Initiative has two primary components: support of work that addresses water sustainability challenges for Native and Indigenous communities and strengthening the Native and Indigenous scholar, student, and staff pathway at the University of Arizona.

The Haury Program has suspended all open calls for proposals and has committed its primary future grants and other resources to support the water sustainability goals of Native and Indigenous communities with a primary emphasis on the Navajo Nation and to strengthening the Native American and Indigenous students, faculty, and staff pathways at the UArizona. In the days ahead, the Haury Program will continue to emphasize building community and supporting each other.

Every year in Spring, the Haury Program releases the Native Pathways award in support of the recruitment of faculty, researchers, students, and staff whose teaching, scholarship, or outreach centers on matters relevant to Native American and Indigenous resilience, including:

- Addressing the severe water access challenges that face Native American and Indigenous communities, especially those facing Native American communities within Arizona
- Strengthening tribal customs and governance, and traditional knowledge
- Exploring ways of approaching resilience challenges of Native American and Indigenous communities that respect tribal customs and traditional knowledge

Thank you for your dedication, resilience, leadership, and compassion. As always, you are the heroes in the stories we tell.
