Indian Energy

What is Indian Energy?

Energy that is produced by a Tribal Nation, community, or business that fits their specific energy resources, needs and goals. Indian Energy is critical to Tribal efforts to take control of their energy future.  
Tribes have inherent powers of sovereignty and self-governance. Sovereignty means the ability to manage their own affairs and exist as Nations that are recognized by the Federal Government as having control over their own destinies.


For hundreds of Indian Tribes across the United States, energy represents a path to sovereignty and an important source of income and jobs.

 No two Tribes are alike and Tribal communities develop projects that fit their specific energy resources and needs. However, Indian energy is critical to Tribal efforts to take control of their energy destinies.
