In order to bring to life our vision of a world where Indigenous resilience, sovereignty, and ways of knowing are respected and advanced to meet climate change challenges, though globally impactful University of Arizona collaborations in research, education and outreach, the Haury Program funds education, research, and outreach that promote Indigenous Resilience in ways that respect tribal knowledge and sovereignty at the UArizona and beyond (Tier One). In particular, we support projects and people who offer the most powerful, culturally appropriate, innovative, and effective means of addressing indigenous resilience with utmost respect for tribal sovereignty.
Our work in this area is centered on three approaches:
1. Supporting the UArizona Indigenous Resilience Center (Ires) people, programs and space;
2. Supporting Indigenous Resilience research and research outreach; and
3. Direct funding for tribal water and engagement projects.
Below are some of the programs we are honored to support, including our Indigenous Resilience Leadership Awards and the exciting new opportunity, the Agnese Nelms Haury Endowment Professorship in Indigenous Resilience.
