Overview
Not An Alternative is a nonprofit organization that collaborates with communities on the front lines of critical environmental and social challenges. Since 2014 the group has run the Natural History Museum, through which Indigenous and allied community leaders, artists, scientists, and researchers are producing exhibitions, alliance-building events, and digital media to support the conservation leadership and initiatives of Tribes in the U.S. and Canadian West. Among its projects are one that aims to connect Native salmon communities from Bristol Bay to the Klamath and an inter-tribal touring program about restoring the Snake River, all of which are priority geographies in the Western Conservation grantmaking strategy.
