Northern Cheyenne

The Northern Cheyenne Tribe and community of Southeastern Montana was selected for the flagship program of Covenant Solar Initiative, in consideration of multiple unique conditions, including the history of the Northern Cheyenne in resisting fossil fuel development, and a Resolution passed by the Tribe to pursue renewable energy development.

Our launch of this Initiative builds upon a series of successful demonstration projects completed by Dr. Riley and Chéri Faso Olf with the Northern Cheyenne, dating back to 2002.  This history and mutual respect have allowed the Northern Cheyenne Tribal Council and Traditional Leaders to gain confidence in the Team, as well as the merits of solar energy technology, itself, as an instrument for both economic development and stewardship of Earth.
