ABOUT THE EVENT
Indigenous peoples have long had knowledge of the dynamics between climate change and society. Due significantly to ongoing colonialism and racism, Indigenous peoples are disproportionately vulnerable to harm from climate change. Indigenous guided solutions to climate change require the ending of colonialism and racism and are leading forces in global movements to stop dangerous climate change.
