Indigenous Perspectives

Sharing Indigenous responses to climate change

The Canadian Climate Institute is committed to ensuring that our work supports Indigenous self-determination, and that Indigenous ways of knowing, being, and doing are reflected in policy recommendations. We recognize that this work must be led by and for Indigenous people, and that historically, research in Indigenous and Northern communities has often neglected the expertise of Indigenous Peoples. We are working to amplify Indigenous voices, research, and ideas to ensure that our research meaningfully and inclusively embodies First Nation, Métis, and Inuit perspectives in order to strengthen the impact and effectiveness of policy recommendations moving forward.

While the Climate Institute commissioned the content presented here, each piece reflects the independent perspectives and insights of the authors and contributors.
