Kootenai Tribe of Idaho, Region 10
Carol Kriebs coordinated the Sac and Fox Nation of Missouri in KS and NE Air Quality Program for 5 years. During that time she served as Region 7 NTAA delegate, National Tribal Science Council delegate, and the NTAA IAQ lead. The program monitored PM2.5, ammonia and mercury, as well as soil temperature and a full metrological station. Currently she serves as the Environmental Director for the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho. The Kootenai Tribe monitors for PM2.5 and works closely with the state. Their major concern for air monitoring is the wildfire smoke. Carol holds two degree’s from Kansas State University in Geography, Natural Resources and Environmental Science, and an MBA from Baker University. She has been married for 30 years, has four children, and a grandson. As NTAA’s current Chairperson, I work to ensure that NTAA helps to empower Tribes to protect and enhance the air that we all breathe.
