President Obama’s 2017 budget strongly supports the sustainable stewardship of tribal trust lands, natural resources, and the environment in Indian Country in the USA. The budget encompasses the protection and restoration of ecosystems and important landscapes; stewardship of land, water, ocean, and energy resources; resilience in the face of a changing climate; and clean and sustainable energy development. The Budget provides $377 million for the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to support tribes in managing resources, which is US$ 33 million more than the budget for stewardship of fisheries, wildlife, forests, water, and tribal lands in 2016.[footnote]The White House.
