WELCOME

Carol A. Kriebs

NTAA Chairperson
Environmental Director for the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho

As the NTAA Chair, I would like to welcome you to the NTAA’s Official website. My Name is Carol A. Kriebs. I am the Environmental Director for the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho and have been working in Tribal Air Quality for eight years. For those eight years I have been an NTAA Executive Committee representative for Region 7 Tribes and then in 2018 for the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho when I relocated to Region 10 to work.  In 2019, I once again had the privilege of being voted in to represent Region 10 Tribes as their NTAA Executive Committee representative. Even though leadership has changed, NTAA’s message is still to help empower Tribes to protect and enhance air quality for everyone.

The National Tribal Air Association was founded in 2002 with a grant from the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Air and Radiation with a mission to advance air quality management policies and programs, consistent with the needs, interests, and unique legal status of American Indian Tribes and Alaska Natives. Tribes are important partners with federal, state and local agencies to protect ambient air quality, indoor air quality and mitigate climate change.

NTAA’s website is a great platform to find NTAA’s policy analysis on air quality policies that impact Tribes, important air quality resources for Tribes, the latest air quality news and more. Welcome to NTAA!
