In cooperation with the Northern Cheyenne Tribal Council, and advised by members of the CSI Team, grassroots environmental organization, ecoCheyenne, is providing community outreach to support development of a robust, resilient, and diversified new “green energy” economy, with investments targeted to improve the quality of life on the 440,000-acre Northern Cheyenne Reservation in remote southeast Montana.

ecoCheyenne was founded in November of 2012 as a grassroots environmental organization to protect Cheyenne homelands, create jobs, and support local economic development. In 2013-2015 ecoCheyenne and National Wildlife Federation, with support from Honor the Earth, worked to raise awareness on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation about preserving sacred lands, inspiring more than 250 Tribal members to contact public officials.   As a result of ecoCheyenne’s efforts, in 2016 and 2017, the Northern Cheyenne Tribal Council has adopted a series of resolutions endorsing green energy to build its capacity to develop commercial and community-based renewable energy facilities.
