Native Expert Advisory Council (NEAC)

Olohana works with our partners, such as the NOAA Pacific Services Center and the PRiMO Indigenous Knowledge and Environment (IKE) Hui, to organize and support an native expert advisory council (NEAC) comprised of Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islanders, and Native Alaskans committed to forwarding our society’s understanding of climate change and variability through multi-generational knowledge systems and modern science. The native expert advisory council (NEAC) contributed to the National Climate Assessment and the Rising Voices Rising Voices National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Workshop in partnership with the Indigenous Peoples Climate Change Working Group and the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian.
