Rising Voices is a vibrant network of Indigenous and earth science professionals, tribal and community leaders, environmental and communication experts, students, educators, and artists from across the US and around the world. The program facilitates intercultural approaches for understanding and adapting to extreme weather and climate events, variability, and change. At its core, Rising Voices aims to advance science through collaborations that bring Indigenous and Earth (atmospheric, social, biological, ecological) sciences into partnership, supports adaptive and resilient communities through sharing scientific capacity, and provides opportunities for Indigenous students and early career scientists through scientific and community mentoring.  It is administered by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research / National Center for Atmospheric Research. (UCAR/NCAR) and Livelihoods Knowledge Exchange Network (LiKEN), and Haskell Indian Nation University.
