Bryan Van Stippen joins Slipstream’s Board of Directors
We are excited to welcome Bryan Van Stippen, Program Director at the National Indian Carbon Coalition (NICC), to the Slipstream board!
Based in Little Canada, Minn., NICC is a greenhouse gas management service providing resources and training for American Indian nations and Indian landowner associations looking to protect their land and generate sustainable income through carbon credit projects. The nonprofit was founded to help tribal nations and individual Indian landowners preserve ownership of their land, discover revenue generation opportunities, reduce emissions, and more.
As a member of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin, NICC’s mission is very important to Bryan. Prior to his work with the NICC, he was employed by the Ho-Chunk Nation as a Tribal Attorney for the Department of Justice before transitioning to the Legislative Office. He looks forward to applying this experience at Slipstream. “As an attorney working in the carbon industry—and with more than 10 years working with tribal nations, Native Hawaiian organizations, and Alaska Native Villages and Corporations—I look forward to broadening Slipstream’s ability to reach and influence the emerging needs of tribal entities throughout the United States.”
Bryan is a graduate of the University of North Dakota School of Law (J.D.), the University of Tulsa College of Law (LL.M. in American Indian and Indigenous Law), and the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law (S.J.D in Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy). He enjoys traveling with his wife, Colleen, and children, Charlotte and Finnick, visiting Indigenous communities throughout the United States.
