About this product
- DescriptionIndigeus nations are on the front line of the climate crisis. With cultures and ecomies among the most vulnerable to climate-related catastrophes, Native peoples are developing twenty-first century responses to climate change that serve as a model for Natives and n-Native communities alike. Native American tribes in the Pacific Northwest and Indigeus peoples around the Pacific Rim have already been deeply affected by droughts, flooding, reduced glaciers and swmelts, seasonal shifts in winds and storms, and the rthward movement of species on the land and in the ocean. Using tools of resilience, Native peoples are creating defenses to strengthen their communities, mitigate losses, and adapt where possible. Asserting Native Resilienc e presents a rich variety of perspectives on Indigeus responses to the climate crisis, reflecting the voices of more than twenty contributors, including tribal leaders, scientists, scholars, and activists from the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia, Alaska, and Aotearoa / New Zealand, and beyond. Also included is a resource directory of Indigeus governments, NGOs, and communities and a community organizing booklet for use by Northwest tribes.
